Organic essential rose oil is usually made from the petals of the species rose, Rosa damascena or sometimes Rosa centifolia. The oil may be extracted by the use of steam (rose otto) or a solvent (rose absolute).
Like any pure essential oil, organic rose hip oil is very potent and should not be used without first diluting it in water or a carrier oil.
One or 2 drops in a teaspoon of jojoba oil or whatever carrier oil you prefer.
Essential oil of rose conveys all the skin healing benefits of rose hip seed oil. In addition, it is anti-viral. Its sweet, floral fragrance will relax you and steady your emotions during times of extreme emotional stress or deep grief.
Add several drops to your bath water just before you step into the tub.

Essential Oil Rose Absolute(Rosa centifolia) 0.125 Oz
Essential Oil Rose Otto(Rosa damascena) 0.125 Oz
Rose absolute is fine for aromatherapy use but I would hesitate to ingest it. The absolute has the rose fragrance you would expect. The otto has an aroma all its own.
I think the rose otto is the superior product for applying to sensitive skin, or if you plan to ingest it, because of the steam distillation method.
Rose Otto diluted in Jojoba Oil Essential Oil is much less expensive.
