Roses have been grow in the fertile soil of Rajasthan, India for hundreds of years. The flowers grown in this region are prized for their rich floral aroma and the precious essential oil locked inside each petal. Purvari’s roses are grown in Rajasthan on organic farms without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers in order to preserve the natural wholesomeness of the flowers.
The roses bloom sporadically throughout the year in Rajasthan’s arid climate, and are hand-picked all year long as the seasons progress. As soon as they are plucked from the stem, the roses are transported to a distillation facility where they are distilled while still fresh and fragrant.
At the distillation facility, our roses undergo traditional steam distillation. We follow a time-honored process, handed down for centuries, that gently coaxes fresh petals to release microscopic droplets of rose oil and water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C. As steam is applied to the rose, the petals release their oils and nutrients, which are then condensed into pure rosewater. Our petals are distilled only once—ensuring that your mist contains all the whole nutrients of the rose. All in all, it takes 60 grams of rose petals to make a single bottle of Purvari Rose Petal Mist.
After distillation, the rosewater is cooled and mixed to suspend the natural oils in the water. It is then sent to the United States where we bottle and package it for our customers.
Because of the time and care we take to preserve the wholesomeness of the rose itself, Purvari Rose Petal Mist maintains the beneficial nutrients of the rose itself. Roses are a natural source of vitamin C, geraniol, and quercetin—antioxidants that have be shown to exhibit mild anti-inflammatory, soothing, and brightening properties. Maintaining the efficacy of these natural glow-boosting nutrients is at the heart of what we do because your skin knows the difference.
