from strong winds, also the efforts of many Bulgarian scientists in
the field of cultivation and selection of Damascena rose have contributed
to the development of rose production in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian rose
oil is extracted through water-steam distillation. The same method of
distillation was used 340 years ago, when rose producing has emerged
in our land. It speaks of a perfect professionalism among our ancestors.
The Bulgarian rose oil is called “the queen of all essential oils”.
This is due to its unique composition of more than 300 ingredients (some
of which are still not identified). The main ingredients are high alcohols
(eleoptens), paraffin hydrocarbons (stearoptens) and many microelements.
Their specific proportion contributes to the rich and long-lasting floral
aroma of the Bulgarian Rose oil.
Bulgarian rose oil is used as a row material for the most expensive
perfumes in the world: Elizabeth Arden, Kenzo, Channel, Bulgari, Paco
Rabanne, Estee Lauder and many others. Its main effect, to slow up skin
aging, makes it applicable in the most famous face creams and cosmetics.

The rose water is 100% pure natural product, which is obtained by
water – steam distillation of Rose Damascena.
The rose water is antibacterial and has a disinfecting effect, this
is because it contains a small quantity of rose oil (about 0, 05%).
It is applied on the skin in case of skin problems such as inflammatory
processes, acne, sunburn, insect bites. You can add rose water in your
own cosmetics (creams, shampoos, body lotions). The rose water is used
in aromatherapy for its relaxing effect. It is also used in the food
industry for flavoring.
The lavender oil is the most commonly used oil. It is obtained by
steam distillation of Lavandula vera blossoms. The Bulgarian lavender
oil is one of the best in the world, because of the typical weather
conditions and soil quality.
Its main ingredients are Linalool and Linalyl acetate. The Linalool
stops the microorganisms’ development, while the Linalyl acetate has
an antispasmodic and antifungal effect.
The lavender oil has various applications in perfume and cosmetic
industry as an active ingredient for creams, lotions, in perfume compositions.
Due to its antibacterial properties, it is known as the safest oil in
aromatherapy. The lavender oil is one of the few that doesn’t cause
allergies. Above all it is an antiseptic and antidepressant (stress,
insomnia, tension); it also has a relaxing effect (anger-soothe, depression,
insomnia) and sooths the pain (headache, cough, and itch), strengthens
the immunity and reduces hair loss. It enhances other oils’ activity

How did the idea to build up an ethnographic
Many people who visited the rose distillery wanted to watch the rose
oil production, which is something unique for the country, and to learn
some interesting facts about Rose Damascena and the rose oil. We had
the required information and decided to share it as most of the sources
are only for professionals.
Therefore we built up an old distillery, called “gulapana” which
is arranged the same way as our ancestors did the installations for
extracting rose oil more than 340 years ago. Our visitors can watch
a demonstration of the rose oil production throughout the season and
they will feel the spirit of the old tradition.
The guests can see the modern working distillery, near the old one.
The new installation also works on the water-steam distillation method,
but it is developed of larger and automated facilities.
Together with rose oil production, rose water is also being produced
here. Rose water is produced at the end of the rose picking, when the
quantity of rose blossoms reduces.
When your tour in the fragrant rose garden is finished, you can taste
traditional rose rakia (brandy) and traditional Bulgarian dishes in
the restaurant from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of the mountains.
In our shop you can find essential oils and products appropriate for
