Title: Adulteration in Rose oil
Authors: Vankar, Padma S

Abstract: Being one of the most highly priced essential oils, rose oil1 has been subjected to adulteration. Formerly adulteration was carried out in a somewhat crude way, by addition of palmarosa oil, guaiac wood oil and spermaceti – the latter to simulate a normal stearoptene content in the adulterated oil. Such conditions can be detected by careful analysis. Today, however, rose oil is often sophisticated in a very clever manner and the analyst may be faced with considerable difficulties in finding the adulterants.
