The Valley of Roses
The Bulgarian Rose begins to blossom in mid-May and continues for three to six weeks, depending of weather conditions. The process of collecting the flowers is very gentle, as each blossom is carefully picked by hand. The harvest begins at sunrise when the oil yield is at its highest and it its completed before noon while the dew is still on the flowers. Each divine rose blossom is hand picked fresh and not fully bloomed, so it can bring the maximum quantity of the fine oil with its best qualities. The extraction process is done by water-steam distillation. 3,000-3,500 kg of fine rose petels are needed to obtain 1 kg of the precious rose oil.
