Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil
The Damask rose (Rosa x damascena) is a rose hybrid. These deciduous shrubs grow around 2 meters tall, producing flowers that range from pink to light red. The Damask rose is highly prized for its sweet fragrance. The petals can be stilled to produce rose water, which is often used to flavour food, or steam-distilled to produce essential oil for fragrances.
