Extraction Method Steam Distillation


We offer the Rose Geranium Oil which is extracted from the perennial hairy shrub that is found seasonally in South Africa alone. The purified oil is obtained through the process of steam distillation after its initial extraction from the fresh leaves and stalks of the plant. Rosa centifolia Also known as the cabbage rose or the Rose de Mai, Rosa centifolia possesses a rich, sweet, rosy and tenacious fragrance and is mainly grown in Egypt and Morocco, as well as in the Grasse region of France and in China. This species of rose is frequently used to produce Rose de Mai absolute and is thought to possess a greener, spicier fragrance than the Rosa damascena. The essential oil of Rosa centifolia was is more challenging to distill than the oil of Rosa damascena, most likely because of the increased delicacy of this species’ many-petaled blooms and it is rarely produced.


The plants originated from South Africa as well as Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco. They were introduced to European countries such as Italy, Spain and France in the 17th century. In native Africa the herb teas was drunk to cure stomach upsets and stop internal bleeding. Throughout the centuries people have cultivated the plants around their homes to keep evil spirits at bay. Out of over 200 species of the rose bush and approximately 10,000 more hybrid species of rose, only about six species are used to produce rose oil and rose absolute, with the vast majority being produced from Rosa damascena and Rosa centifolia. Other species of rose used to produce rose otto and rose absolute in limited quantities are Rosa rugosa, Rosa alba, Rosa bourbonia and Rosa moschata. These particular rose species exhibit the traditional fragrance commonly associated with the rose plant, while other varieties may exude aromas of fruits, musks, or other flowers (Guenther, E. (1952) The Essential Oils. London: Macmillan). The rose’s familiar fragrance is due to a simple water-soluble alcohol, beta-phenylethanol, and three monoterpenic oil-soluble alcohols, geraniol, nerol, and citronellol. The acetate esters of these alcohols are also rose-scented but of a slightly different fragrance. The clove-scented eugenol and methyl eugenol contribute to the spiciness of the rose’s fragrance. The different concentrations of these chemicals determine the final fragrance, which varies for each species of rose

The Rose Geranium Oil finds wide usage in the perfumery and cosmetics industry because of its innate fragrance and beautifying properties. It is very helpful for treating nervous tension and stress-related complaints, nausea, palpitation, scarring, poor circulation, skin problems, wrinkles, uterine disorders and others. Rose is a very popular fragrance in many cosmetics and creams, as well as perfumes, toilet preparations, lozenges, and toothpaste. Rose essential oil, as well as the other various types of rose extracts, has been widely used in perfumery since ancient times. Because of this long, rich history, accounts vary about where exactly rose oil was first used as a fragrance, but it is widely believed that the first rose oil perfumes originated in Persia (present-day Iran). Today the fragrance of the rose is still one of the most desired aromas in the perfume industry. Rose oil is a fundamental ingredient in virtually all fine perfumes made by most famous perfumers, including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Lancôme, Bulgari, and Chanel (Omda, source). Because Rosa damascena is renowned for its fine fragrance, this species is the most widely used rose in perfumery.
