Dried Pink Rose Boutons (from France)

Rosebuds measure 1/2" long. Cut and sifted Rosa Centifolia.

The rose has been valued for its beauty and its perfume for thousands of years. Because rose oil deteriorates rapidly with exposure to sun and wind, the content is highest on the first morning when the flower opens. Rose petals picked for distillation are picked manually, day by day, at or just before sunrise.

Perfect little dried rose buds. Natural.
