Rose oil is fragrant and extracted through the steam distillation of rose petals. The oil sometimes can seem rather expensive because you need about 2 thousand flowers to obtain a gram of oil. This just means you you’re getting pure quality.
Often times you might also see a rose combination blend with another oil, frequently geranium.
