Hi Leigh Anne,

One or two bubbles doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s off, nor does the lack of rose scent, but if it smells rancid or mouldy, or you see some mould or stringy bots in your oil, then yes it is just not meant to be, unfortunately.

If however none of these above mentioned signs are present and it still looks and smells like oil, then keep going. I will say that for ‘cold’ extractions I usually left them sit somewhere in my house that has a bit of warmth to them (on a fridge or a shelf near, but not too close, to a wood or kitchen stove) and it usually needs to sit for at least 6 weeks.

Another thing I have learned in the past few years is to enhance extraction, it is best to blend the plant in with the oil, so you could at this point, pop it all in a blender and blend it up. Does it have a lid on it as well?

This is a tough one, rose can be a challenging one to extract as they are so delicate and so much or their volatile oils evaporate so easily even when drying.

With warmth,
Benna
