Rose Gulab Attar Essential Oil

From the Hindi {gulabi= = ROSE, from the Persian “atir perfumed”, from the Arabic”itr perfume”, the Arabic word “attar” means “aroma, smell”. Gulab-Attar.

History of Attaren

According to legend, it all started with Attara Gulab, a pink attar. Its discoverer was Empress Nurjan, wife of Emperor Jehangir of the Mughal dynasty. Legend has it that she loved to bathe in pink petals as often as possible. And once, when she was doing a morning bath, she was impressed by the aroma of a layer of oil on the surface of the water. The water cooled overnight and a layer of essential rose oil formed on its surface.


The production of attars is based on an Indian tradition that is about 200 years old. The difficult extraction of rare flower scents is often based on a secret recipe.

Transportable distilleries are important here so that they can be brought to the harvesting site. So that even the most sensitive flowers can be processed fresh and quickly. The fire used to heat the distillation water must also be monitored extremely carefully. It must burn very evenly. For this purpose, dried cow dung is mostly used.

The flowers are distilled using water distillation. However, the condensed water and essential oils are not collected in an empty container, but in a container that holds five kilos of finished sandalwood essential oil. This container is placed in a cold water bath so that the sensitive attar is not spoiled by unnecessary heat. The same sandalwood oil can and should absorb the fragrances from several distillation processes. These can always be one type of flower, but they can also be carefully coordinated compositions of different flowers.(Eliane Zimmerman)

The most famous are the attare of roses, henna flowers, marigolds, champaka, tuberose, vetiver, agarwood, lotus flowers and saffron.
There are several other attare produced according to traditional recipes, the exact composition of which is not publicly announced: these are special blends of herbs and spices that are endemic in India.
