You may be wondering what a freeze dried rose is exactly? “Of all the methods to preserve roses, Freeze Drying (Lyophilization) is the finest and most natural. Only freeze drying keeps most of the original color and texture of the flowers. Freeze drying is the removal of water vapor from flowers while in a frozen state. This all happens in a special machine and it takes around 14 days. There are no chemicals used in the freeze drying process. Only some varnish is used after the process to increase longevity. The process enables the flowers to retain their color, shape and size. The result is near perfect preservation! You may enjoy these roses for months!”
For best results follow these care and handling guidelines:
- When storing, place in cool, dry, dark place.
- When displaying, keep away from direct sunlight and humidity.
- When cleaning, use a dust cleaner. Do not spray with cleaning solution.
- Do not refrigerate or freeze – These roses have been already properly processed!
