What is the Genus Species? Rosa damascena

Why is this information important? There are several species of rose that are grown in different parts of the world including Bulgaria, Turkey and Morocco.

The Moroccan species (Rosa cenfifolia) is very high in phenyl ethanol while the Bulgarian species contain a high level of citronellol. They both have different aromas and healing properties so make sure you know your genus species, extraction process and your supplier!
