Bulgarian Rose


They say that perfume was an essential part of Cleopatra’s life. It's fascinating to imagine that when Julius Caesar or Marcus Aurelius travelled miles to lie down in her bed they were guided by a delicate fragrance veil created especially for them. When these historical powerful men, whom we know from stone sculptures and monuments took off their armor and put their nose in the neck of the Queen of the Nile… they were embraced by the scent of… roses. Cleopatra used fresh roses. It is said that she slept with rose petals in her bed and sprinkled them all over the house while waiting for her lovers. Her beloved Marcus Aurelius is said to have been welcomed by Cleopatra on a ship with rose perfumed sails.

Bulgarian Rose Oil, or Rose Damask, is the essential oil extracted from the petals of one of the rarest flowers in the world, the Bulgarian Rose Damascena; which is only cultivated and harvested in the Bulgarian Rose Valley.
Containing a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose essential oil has excellent emollient properties for moisturizing dry skin; it also offers antiseptic and astringent properties to treat acneic skin, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation. It is one of the best oils to give you shining, fresh and youthful skin.
Bulgarian Rose Oil contains a powerful compound called linalool which has been known to reduce skin stressors when applied to the skin. And because this is an essential oil, the aromatherapy benefits make this ritual of toning that much more exquisite. In aromatherapy, inhaling of Bulgarian Rose can transmit messages to the area of the brain that control our emotions. This same region of the brain that is triggered by Bulgarian Rose has a profound effect on our central nervous system, blood pressure, breathing and immune function. This ingredient really serves double duty not only for beautifying effects but for our overall sense of well-being. Its essence keeps you charged and feeling sexy, sensuous, seductive and happy.
