LOVE IN A BOTTLE – ROSE FESTIVAL MOROCCO

Every year, The Rose Festival is held around the end of May. Two vast distilling plants in El Kelaa des MGouna, the Dades Valley host this festival, and it is there you can see ‘the hard work’ ‘this labour of love’ needed to pick, gather and bring the roses to distillation. Rose oil and fragrance is very expensive as it takes 3000kg of petals to make 1 litre of oil, Healing properties of the rose include uplifting depression, calming nerves, and opening the heart chakra. The aroma of the rose in itself is wonderful to smell.

Rose oil and fragrance here in Marrakech can be found at Orientaliste in Gueliz and at Unite Pharmarcy on Hassan Ave where Rajaa the owner has made her own brand. Fabulous!
