Rose Oil
Rose oil, which is one of the most important and costly raw materials of the perfume and cosmetics industry, is produced by boiling pink roses using the vapor distillation method.

Rose oil of world standard quality is obtained from roses grown in Isparta and its outlying regions located at an altitude of 1050m above sea level and higher. The production season for rose oil commences in May and ends in June when the roses are picked and taken into immediate processing.

Rose Oil Production
Rose flowers, which are collected every day in the early morning hours are prepared for processing in 500 kg bundles. Each bundle is then then placed in boilers filled with 500 litres of water. The covers of the boilers are closed and steam distillation with a pressure of 2-3 atmospheres is initiated. The condensed oily water is distilled through a thermostat for 70-80 minutes at a temperature of 30-35 degrees. This process is called the first distillation.

The condensed oily water is collected in the front flasks. In this combined can system, the greenish rose oil (raw rose oil) is collected in the cans above and the oily water in the cans below. The oily rose water below is transferred to the oily water tanks for a second distillation. A specified amount of the oily water collected in the oily water tanks is transferred to oil boilers and distilled with a water pressure of 2-3 atmospheres. The yellowish rose oil collected in the front jugs of the oil boilers is poured into rose oil bottles after each distillation. This process is called the second distillation. The rose oil obtained in the first and second distillation is filtered separately. The filtered rose oil is mixed and put into rose oil bottles.

The rose oil bottles are sealed and left to rest for the second filtering. At the end of the harvesting, after a rest period of 15-20 days, the rose oil produced is delivered to the filter room. Under the supervision of the filter commission, the rose oil obtained from all plants is mixed in equal proportions and filtered in copper boilers, which are coated inside with tin, in order to obtain standardized rose oil. The standardized rose oil obtained after the second filtering is put into copper cans of 1, 2 and 2.5 kg, which are coated inside and outside with tin. The covers of these cans are soldered. The reason for filtering twice is to minimize the amount of residue and water leakage and thus obtain rose oil of the best possible quality.
