Rose otto

Very happy with this product

This oil smells amazing! You have to hold the bottle upside down for a few seconds before you get one drop of oil out, so there is no waste. Yes it is expensive, due to how it's produced but I think it's worth it. I've also used the Rose Absolute, which is lovely so if your budget doesn't run to Otto then I'd recommend that one.

Ignore review from Helen H - she is lying

Helen H from Redditch claims she only got 2-3 drops out of the bottle. This is rubbish. Rose oil comes as 2.5ml in a 10ml container and it clearly states that. Anyone who knows anything about essential oils knows how very expensive Rose Otto is and understands this to be the case. In each ml of oil you get 20 drops out of a Neals Yard dropper. She would therefore have got 50 drops in her 2.5ml, not the 2-3 drops she claims. If she only got 2-3 drops she would not have been able to see ANY oil in the jar at all. I cant stand people like this and have to wonder what her agenda is ? Working for the competition maybe, or wrangling for a freebie !


This oil is pricey but it's well worth it. The smell at least in my bottle was divine, although I love rose a lot anyway this was a truly pure and beautiful smell. I have used it for aromatherapy, in cosmetics and even in baking. It has been outstanding again and again, uplifting, softening and balancing to skin and hair and my buttercream I made with just one small drop had a wonderful light rose all the way through it. If you like rose this is for you, it is expensive and if you're really strapped for cash consider the absolute but in my opinion the otto definitely justifies the price. I would like very much if Neal's Yard would offer a CO2 extracted oil and a centrifolia oil as well as the damask

unsure of measurements

Like the other comments before me, whilst it may have been mentioned in the shop by the assistant briefly, I did't fully realise that the bottle would only contain 2.5 mls of the oil. The advise for massage oil on all of your essential oils says 15 drops/ unknown amount of oil. This would use up most of the bottle in one go. As this rose oil is more concentrated than the other, is the amount to add still the same? Do you have any recipes with amounts to use, to make this last longer? I wonder how much is in the rose balm? I haven't opened it yet, so could always return and swap for something else

Beautiful smell but check the contents

This oil smells amazing. Sadly there was hardly anything in the bottle and definitely less than the quantity stated. I loved the smell of this in the shop (hence the 1 star) when the assistant was showing me the range of oils available. When I picked ithsi one she did point out that it was quite a bit more expensive than the other oils. I said I didn't mind paying more as all my oils have lasted ages. What she didn't point out was that this one only has a quarter of the quantity of the other oils - 2.5ml instead of 10 ml. I didn't notice this until I got home when I was trying to use it in my diffuser. At a push I may have got 2 or 3 drops out of the bottle, and certainly no aroma from my diffuser so I'm not even sure there were any drops in it at all! I'm so disappointed as I completely wasted a lot of money and I've always felt Neal's Yard product were good value because they are great quality. I've never left a review for anything before but on this occasion I feel so strongly about this that I thought I should share my experience with others.Sorry Neal's Yard but there's a limit to customer loyalty
