Rosa Gallica, also known as the French Rose, is believed to be indigenous to Iran where these species have been cultivated since time immemorial.

The cultivation of the Rose probably started in ancient times in Persia.

Rosa Gallica (Gallic Rose, French Rose, or Rose of Provins) is a species of flowering plant in the Rose family, native to southern and central Europe eastwards to Turkey and the Caucasus.

 The variety of Rosa Gallica Officinalis that is cultivated in many regions across the globe is also known as Apothecary's Rose.

The Gallicas are probably the oldest of all garden Roses. They were grown by the Greeks and Romans.

In the 17th century the Dutch started to breed new varieties, and later the French continued their development on a very large scale. Among them are to be found some very fine Roses with magnificent mixtures of colour - particularly among the crimson, purple and mauve shades - and they have beautiful flower formation.

Plants of this species are deciduous shrubs that often grow up to 1,5 meters in height. Although Roses of this species have developed naturally over several centuries into the plants we are now familiar with, they were first developed by breeders during the early 1800's. Plants belonging to this family of Roses have even stalks bearing piercing thorns. The stems of the plants possess spikes and bristles with glands. The edges of the leaves are jagged like a saw and each leaf has three to seven pairs of leaflets that are bluish-green. These deciduous shrubs cover a large area forming a green covering. The flowers appear in bunches of one to four, while each flower has five single petals that are aromatic and profoundly pink in hue. The hips resemble globes or have an ovoid shape and vary in diameter between 10 mm and 13 mm. Their color ranges from orange to brownish.

People who are involved with aromatherapy utilize the Rose as a mild tranquilizer, anti-depressant and also to cure inflammations or tenderness.

Several researches have established that the petals of the Rose and the preparations with them are similar. In addition to the therapeutic uses of the Rose mentioned above, the petals of the flower and medicines prepared with them have proved to lower elevated cholesterol levels in our bloodstream.

Conversely, Rosewater is mildly caustic or astringent by nature and hence, it is incorporated as an important element for preparing a cream that is used to heal swelling as well as eye pains.

The Rose has always been a symbol of love and over the centuries many marriages have been celebrated with scattered Rose Petals and romantic Rose Petal baths.

The Rose Blossom’s distillate was used to prepare Rosewater, Rose Vinegar and perfume.
