Rose incense has a sweet and confident fragrance that can bring a deeper element to our emotions. Rose increases love, compassion and devotion and gives a sense of security and spiritual attunement. It promotes sleep, reduces anger, is gently anti-depressive, calms strife and instills a feeling of peace, happiness and confidence.
'Rosa' comes from the Greek 'Roden' meaning 'red', as the ancient rose was thought to have been crimson. It is generally accepted that there are more than 5000 varieties of roses, yet only a few of them exhibit that marked fragrance that is sought by perfumeries. Two major types of oil-bearing roses used to be cultivated for the purposes of attar extraction: the Pink and the White Damask rose. The Pink Rose plantations brought almost 90% of the total output. White roses were preferred for planting in higher altitudes. 60,000 roses, about 180lb, are pressed to produce 30 ml of pure oil.
