An exclusively formulated Turkish Rose Oil made from organically harvested Rosa x damascena in the Isparta Province. The precious rose oil is too potent on its own and therefore has been expertly blended with other highly beneficial oils of macadamia, apricot kernel, sweet almond, and avocado.

The Story

Esengül Artisoy is a rose harvester living in the village of Senir near the city of Isparta in Turkey. Esengül, whose name means “roses in the wind”, was born into a family of rose farmers. Her family no longer cultivates their own roses, but the rose harvest, starting in May of each year, is her favorite time of the year. The season is short and the blooms are plucked before the sun dries the precious oil contained within rosa x damascena - one of the two types of roses in the world which produce the oil. The Turkish farmers and harvesters are responsible for some sixty percent of the world’s annual rose harvest.
