Product Overview

Our Organic Rose de Mai Extract is softer and gentler than Rose de Mai Absolute and is extracted using benign solvents (no hexane) which renders the final extract Certified Organic (USDA, NOP). This oil is completely mobile and has an astounding and exquisite aroma! Because it is certified organic, our Rose de Mai Organic Extract is ideal for aromatherapy applications as well as fine natural perfumery. However, its best use may very well be for cosmetic/personal care applications as well as esoteric anointing and the like. For perfumery purposes, it does not have the depth of aroma that is found in Rose Absolutes and Rose Ottos, however, its gentle aromatic character does not diminish its aromatherapy and skincare benefits. PLEASE NOTE: This extract is soluble in fixed oils only. It is not soluble in alcohol or alcohol-based perfumes.

R. centifolia (the ‘hundred-petaled rose’) is known as Rose de Mai in reference to the month May when it generally blooms, as well as ‘the painter’s rose’ because its large, globular flowers are the featured rose in many works of the early masters. With their multi-petaled intricacy, it is no surprise that Rose essential oils and absolutes are among plant essences with the most chemical complexity. And while many of the more than 400 chemical constituents[1] of Rosa centifolia and R. damascena are present in mere trace amounts, they contribute immensely to the rich and nuanced fragrance we know as Rose.

“For its perfume, the Rose reigns supreme amongst the flowers of the world.”[2] Known as the oil of love, the comforting and inspiring aroma of Rose oil is said to encourage the metaphorical “opening of the heart.” It is especially esteemed for promoting spiritual wellbeing, creating a peaceful ambiance, and as an excellent companion to meditation practices.

Gorgeous and exquisite

Rating

Rose de Mai is my favorite rose oil. Has to be among my top 3 oils now from Eden Botanicals. I was never fond of too much florals that are too much in your face (such as rose otto, ylang-ylang) or sweet vanilla, but this one is not an aggressive scent at all. It is more subtle and nuanced, and absolutely gorgeous. I am in love.

The color is green & it smells to me like a fruity rose & It's good for diffusing & I mixed it 50/50 with y'alls orange blossom organic extract & it is divine!

Review by Brad 11/2/2020

Exquisite!

Rating

I have loved the scent of rose in all forms my entire life. But without a doubt, rose de mai is beyond anything I have ever experienced. It is complex, sublime and utterly unique. I can’t imagine that I will ever find a fragrance more exquisite than this.

hint of leather..

Rating

Not sure why this batch I got has a hint of leather... maybe I'm too used to the bulgarian rose ottos & absolutes

Review by Yun 11/11/2018

Beautiful and true to nature...

Rating

I love this extract. I am familiar with rose de mai in its absolute form, but this is my first time trying the extract. This is a beautiful, warm, rose scent with a hint of a green herbacious note. It is not aggressive, but gentle and subtle. Reminds me of being in a garden or in the middle of nature...very easy to blend and work with, too.
