    Very nice indeed. This once more proves how much flowers are required to have only a relatively small amount of oil. Thanks!

    I like the pic in which a man, with the help of a dropper, hand-fills a small flask with oil extracted from the neck of a larger bottle, where you can see the oil floating on top of the water. That's what I call artisanal!

    Thank you for the pictures, they're just beautiful!

    Did you know it takes over four-thousand pounds of rose petals to make one pound of rose oil? I love roses with an all-consuming passion. I adore the old garden roses from past centuries, such as the Damask roses seen in these pictures. They have been in cultivation for thousands of years to make perfume. The history of roses and the history of perfume go hand in hand...

    It was my passion for roses that made me love perfumes, and that led me to loving natural perfumes. The process of making rose oil, or any floral oil, how the flowers must be picked and processed with such care, makes it truly special. Sadly, in parts of the world where this has been done for centuries, distilling genuine flower oils is becoming a dying art because they are so expensive to produce. It's a real treat to see people doing it. They seem so content. Imagine being in a cloud of such fragrance for weeks on end. Yum!

    Thanks again,

    Siri Amrit

    its said that it takes about 5000 five thousand to 7000 seven thousand kilogram of high quality and clean rose leaves to make one kilogram of rose essence (not rose oil but more diluted) which is the purest and most expensive essence of the rose and a drop or two *of it is enough for one liter of fragrance.

    Do you know if this is where Madini gets their rose oil? In the second to last picture (from the first link) those small bottles look very much like Madini's. Thanks.
