Ancient civilisations across the world drew on the many properties of roses for medicinal, culinary, religious and ritual purposes. The Himalayas are home to more than 15 species of wild roses, and floral water distillation dates back to the Indus Valley civilisation, at least 3000 BC. Ayurveda details many of these species, along with their medicinal properties and different ways to prepare them.
One Hindu myth describes a debate between the Vishnu and Brahma about which flower is superior - the rose or the lotus. Brahma visits Vishnu's celestial gardens and upon seeing the roses and smelling their fragrance, concedes defeat.
It's believed that the first Mughal, Babur, brought the Damascan Rose (Rose Otto) to India from Iran. Mughals introduced the practice of sprinkling rose hydrosol on guests, to cool and refresh them.
