The best Rose Otto

Cannot find any better. Only SUCH a shame that ordering such a small and pricey item requires me to pay such a high postage cost!

A gentle scent which fills the room

I've used Neal's Yard rose otto oil for several years in an oil infuser. It is the most exquisite oil which smells not slightly of roses, or of a mixture of rose and other (cheaper) oils, but wholeheartedly of plunging one's nose straight into a rose-bush. It lasts astonishingly well and only a tiny amount (one drop) is needed: the next day the room still smells absolutely gorgeous but it is not the slightest bit overpowering (when used in the tiny doses suggested).

I have used the rose oil in a defuser as a warm aroma to welcome visitors.
