Found this picture and was so intrigued to know what it’s all about. Turns out, it’s a three-day rose festival in a small town in Morocco! May is harvest time for roses to distill to make rose water. So chances are that your rose water toners, oils, or rose-scented perfumes could all be from here.
Learnt so much through this lady’s adventure. It was almost like a story book! Had no idea that a teaspoon of pure rose oil costs about £70. Wow.
Another country that’s famous for it’s roses is Bulgaria which produces about 70% of the rose oil in the world. Roses ain’t really my thing, but going on the rose picking rituals in different villages would be such a neat experience!
