The Super Herb
Science and Ancient Wisdom agree - the super herb Bulgarian Rose is among the most healing and beautifying herbs on the planet.
The Bulgarian Rose (a.k.a. Bulgarian Rosa Damascena) is more than a beautiful ﬂower. It is the richest in flavonoids herb. Science has proven that free radicals cause skin & body aging, mental decline, heart disease and even cancer through a process known as oxidative stress. The polyphenols (flavonoids and phenolic acids) in the Bulgarian Rose are potent antioxidants that prevent free-radical cell damage. The anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-oxidative effects of flavonoids explain the plethora of health benefits of the Bulgarian Rose. More than 170 studies conducted on Bulgarian Rosa Damascena testify to its positive effects on skin health, mood (alleviating anxiety and depression), mental health (Alzheimer’s and dementia), heart health, anti-aging and longevity.

The benefits of Rose have been time-tested for centuries in traditional Chinese, Iranian and Ayurvedic medicine. Ancient civilizations grasped what Nikola Tesla called the "secret of the Universe - Energy, frequency and vibrations". Whether you call it Chi, Prana or Life Force, energy has been at the center of healing for millennia. The Bulgarian rose oil is known as the substance with the highest vibrational energy on earth, almost twice higher than any other substance. It won’t be long before science catches up with ancient medicine on the importance of food vibrations and their healing effects.
It is not a coincidence that the Rose has been the ideal gift to express love and forgiveness for thousands of years. According to Auyrvedic medicine, roses literally soothe the heart and emotions. The rose balances Sadhaka Pitta, which govern emotions and their effect on the heart. While it has a cooling effect, it also enhances Agni, the digestive fire. This unique property makes it balancing for all three doshas, which explains the effect of the Rose in balancing hormones and creating overall well-being.
The essence of rose augments the glow and complexion of the skin. The rose also enlivens inner beauty, helps the skin to radiate inner glow out to others, and enhances all seven dhatus (body tissues). When used over time, the essence of rose pacifies the heat in the blood, and thus keeps imbalances in the skin from erupting. There are some specific ailments that are helped by the rose. These include amenorrhea (absence of menstrual flow), inflamed eyes, dizziness, headache due to Pitta aggravation, sore throat, enlarged tonsils, nervousness, grief, dullness of the skin and acne caused by Pitta imbalances. The rose is used in many rasayanas, the herbal formulas that promote overall health and longevity.
How we make your
How we make your
In late spring, during only three weeks per year, we handpick your organic Roses in our Rose farms in Bulgaria. We handpick them at dawn, before the sun rises, and while the petals have the highest concentration of essential oils. Through a unique process, we immediately extract the nutrients from the fresh petals to preserve their richness and quality. We transport the Rose extract and the Rose oil via air to our facilities in California, where we handcraft in small batches your Rose Nectar® - a proprietary blend of Bulgarian Rose extract and essential Rose oil. The result is the only ingestible Rose product of with the full gamut of the Bulgarian Rose nutrients and a distinguished, pure taste and aroma. We then pour it in amber glass bottles to protect against the effects of light, so you can enjoy the most pristine Rose product in the world. We called it Nectar, “the drink of the Gods” because of its potent anti-aging properties.
Born in Bulgaria. Made with Love in California.
We grow meticulously our Organic Roses in our Rose farms tucked in the Rose Valley of Bulgaria - a huge advantage when it comes to the quality and purity of the Roses from which we handcraft your Rose Nectar®. While Rosa Damascena grows in a few regions of the world, the Roses grown in Bulgaria have long been recognized as the best oil-bearing Roses in the world. The unique climate between two mountain ridges, the rich soil of the Rose Valley and the long-standing traditions of growing these Roses make it the best place on earth for this super herb to flourish. Once mild winters fade, a long and balmy spring brings light rains, high humidity, and morning dew — key ingredients to deliver the world’s best Rose. No wonder this super herb is better known as "the Bulgarian Rose".
