Love this rose oil! Like all K.M. oils, it possesses the true essence of whatever the flower, bark, leaves, etc. may be - in this case flower - rose. I've found rose oil to be the most difficult floral oil to find. Oh - you can find it other places alright, but the quality is often lacking; it either has a chemical smell, or is just not rose intensive. If you have been searching for the perfect, picked from the garden but better rose, than this is it!
