ATTAR OF ROSE
I became fascinated with Rose when my Mum gave me a clear glass vial with corked top & an old tattered label ‘Attar of rose’. This had belonged to my great grandmother & smells so beautifully of roses, I cannot believe it has aged a day! This intoxicating essential oil is distilled from the fresh petals of Rosa Damascena.
On my recent trip to Damascus, Syria, I discovered the origins of this essence and this is what I found in the oldest souk in the world.
If you are unable to get to Syria in the near future, I have made my very own Rose water spray which you can purchase online at our shop.
As an all-round rose anything lover, I recommend you use Moroccan rose hair oil. Put about AU 10c piece (that would be a quarter in the US) and rub through wet hair after washing.
