Now I ignored all the hype about rose essential oil because I am exposed to fancy expensive serums which cost $200 a bottle and so in my mind there was no way a simple and natural oil could do much to help my skin.
Plus I have oily skin and I did not want to add more oil to it. However rose oil is a dry oil, meaning that it penetrates into the skin and does its work leaving no trace of its existence 15 minutes after applying it.
Rose oil may be an oil but it surely acts like a serum. Before I returned from Bulgaria I bought some more rose oil. I did some fact checking and read some reviews online.
Each one of them raved about Rose oil. The problem is finding true rose oil is hard.
It takes 60000 roses to make 1 ounce of concentrated Rose essential oil. So 1 drop of rose essential rose is the equivalent of 60 roses. This makes it very expensive and highly prized.
Rose oil is more expensive than gold. It cost $2400 an ounce and gold $1260 an ounce so many products have tiny amounts in them (Not enough to have good effects).
And Bulgaria has the most potent roses because they have been growing it for centuries.
That is why I brought some of it back home.
