refers to rose-infused oil or actuall rose otto (from what I have
researched, both were available).>>>

What is the difference between "rose-infused oil" and "rose otto"? I  
don't think I've heard of the latter. Is the first rose essence which  
has been extracted by soaking rose petals in an oil? And the second  
is the obtained by pressing the oil out of rose petals using weight?   
I assume steaming rose petals and distilling the vapors gets you rose  
water, not rose oil.

I do have these two files, but neither of these is about rose oil.

rose-water-msg    (34K) 11/27/00    Where to buy. How to make. Rose- 
water uses.

Hmmm. We just had a Tournament of the Roses event this last weekend  
and it had an A&S contest featuring roses. I think I just missed an  
opportunity to try making some rose items.
