Genuine Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil
This Wild As The Wind Organic Rose Otto Aromatherapy Oil is a genuine Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil. Sadly, many are not.
It takes 1.2 million rose petals to make 10ml of essential oil, thus making Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil a very valuable commodity.
This sadly means that there are many fake Rose Oils to be found. Unscrupulous producers, of chemically synthesised Rose Oils, can make huge profits, especially online.
However, many of these bogus Rose Oils are potentially dangerous, some severely so. For this reason, Rose Essential Oil should never be bought on price. Nor should it be bought from non-credentialed suppliers.
The best credentials, these days, come in the form of the body of customer feedback a company has earned… but, of course, even customer feedback can be faked!
Nevertheless, it is relatively easy to discern the fake reviews from the genuine ones… and, it won’t take you long to ascertain that all of the Wild As The Wind feedback is authentic.
How To Tell If You Have A Genuine Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil
Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil should be solid at room temperature during the cooler months. A genuine, natural Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil will thus distinguish itself from lab generated, chemically synthesised oils.
Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil Versus Rose Absolute
It is very unfortunate that the solvent extraction of essential oils has acquired the name ‘absolute’.
Many people interpret the word ‘absolute’ as denoting purity, but sadly, this is anything but the case.
Absolute oils are extracted using toxic solvents, some of which will remain in the oil, after it has been obtained from the plant materials.
Clearly, toxic solvents are not good for us, so the name is very misleading.
Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil is a lot more expensive than Rose Absolute Oil, because the yield from the steam distillation of rose petals is a lot lower than the amount of essential oil, and other products, that is procured through solvent extraction.
Solvent extraction draws out pigments and other facets of the plant material, which is another reason why absolute oils are simply not pure oils.
Wild As The Wind Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil
This exquisite Rosa Damascena Oil is sourced from the Rose Valley in Bulgaria, from one of the most skilled producers in the world. They are a multi-generational grower, essential oil distiller and herbalist.
Rose Oil can be easily obtained from Turkey and Morocco, but the quality just isn’t the same. As it takes 1.2 million Rose petals to make 10ml of essential oil, the extraction of the essential oils has to be elevated to an art form if it is going to be done properly.
The growers of roses in Rose valley in Bulgaria have done just that… and no-one can compete with them.
As it takes so much plant material to make such a small amount of oil, genuine Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil is a rare and precious thing.
Wild As The Wind Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil is a premium quality aromatherapy oil, suitable for therapeutic purposes.
