Rosewater and rose oil have been highly valued for many centuries not just for their exquisite perfume but also for their complex healing properties.
How rose oil works, either as a perfume agent or as a therapeutic one is still not fully understood. It has over 400 chemical constituents, but only a few of these are involved in creating the famous rose fragrance. This natural complexity makes it impossible to be imitated.
The Persian Rose products contain only the finest rose oil sourced from present day Persia where the roses are handpicked at dawn and distilled with pure mountain stream water. The methods of farming and distillation have not changed in this region for hundreds of years, producing a totally organic and authentic rose oil of unrivalled quality.The precious rose oil is present in all of our products, and it is this which is responsible for their extraordinary powers of healing and rejuvenation. Whether moisturising, toning, reducing wrinkles and scars, or curing with aromatherapy, there is a lot more to the rose than just a beautiful flower.

Teresa Scarman was first introduced to rosewater in 1992 whilst exhibiting her old-fashioned roses at the Chelsea Flower Show. She was captivated by its wonderful fragrance and its soothing effect on the skin, and immediately wanted to learn more. As she discovered, rosewater is by no means a new invention, it dates back as far as 1200BC in Persia, and has been used as a skin tonic, a medicine and also as a cooking ingredient.
Persian Rose began as a result of her intolerance to using well-known skin care products that would leave her sensitive skin irritated, due to excessive amounts of chemicals. She couldn’t find any gentle and effective skincare products that she could use, so she decided to create her own range using organic rosewater and precious rose oil as the primary ingredients.
The Persian Rose skincare range is designed for those with sensitive skin and for those of us who simply love the rose. Today, Persian Rose is based in the heart of Devon and produced with the same passion and vision that created it.
We invite you to enjoy our beautiful rose products, which are designed to gently nurture the skin with natural goodness.
