Rose absolute is extracted using solvent extraction, steam distillation and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction. Rose absolute is extracted using a delicate process that is similar to 'effleurage' that is pressing of petals in fat to produce an extract. In this process, flower essence is extracted to produce a wax like 'concrete'. This is subsequently subjected to extraction as a result of which rose absolute oil is yielded. It is an effective method as compared to steam distillation.
