Rose Otto and Rose Absolute

Both Rose otto (sometimes called attar of roses) and Rose absolute (Rosa damascena, Rosa centifolia and others) come from rose petals. Rose otto is steam distilled from fresh rose petals. When the oil from rose petals is removed using a solvent, it is called rose absolute. The oil from roses is used extensively in perfumery. It is also useful in treating dry and mature skin.
