The book includes the following chapters...

Where do damask roses come from?:

"Nobody knows exactly who bred the first damask rose, if indeed human hands were involved in its conception, or where in the world the first damask was found. Stuart reaches back thousands of years to attempt to answer these questions and comes up with some interesting suggestions of his own!"

How important rose extracts are produced:

"The processes by which the essential oil is extracted and rose water is made along with the production of rose absolute, concrete and wax are described in detail."

The scent of roses:

"In this chapter Stuart analyses the components of the essential oil to define the exact components involved in creating the distinctive aroma of what can truly be described as the number one perfume ingredient, and the most expensive. We also take a detour into the effects that this special oil and scent has on human beings, exploring why this particular flower and its oil are so closely connected with love and God!"

Damask rose - the medicine:

"Apart from its status as number one perfume damask rose has been an important medicine in every major traditional system of medicine on Earth. The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese and Europeans all depended on the healing power of this beautiful plant. It has found a particular use in the treatment of womens problems and skin diseases. Stuart, a medical herbalist, describes exactly how it works."

Damask rose - the cosmetic:

"Did you know that the oldest cleansing, anti-wrinkle and rejuvenating skin cream on Earth is based on damask rose? It dates from the Roman era and still out sells many modern skin creams. Again Stuart tells us exactly how damask rose extracts benefit the skin and why damask rose extracts have stood the test of time to become the most important ingredients in skin care products."
