In ancient Egypt rose oil was one of the ingredients of embalming mixtures.

In his work ‘Natural History’, a sui generis encyclopaedia of the Nature in 37 volumes, the Roman scholar Plinius Secundus ( Pliny the Elder ) ( 23 B. C. - 79 B. C. ) listed 32 medicinal preparations that include roses.

In the traditional Bulgarian medicine rose petal preserve is used both as a helminthagogue ( deworming agent ) against Enterobius vermicularis ( pinworm ), Ascarides and an aperient ( mild laxative ).
