Can Rose oil be used in cooking?

I bought pure rose oil in Bulgaria to use in baking and now I see a warning that it's not to be used internally. I want to make rose leaf cookies. The shopkeeper in Bulgaria said use 1 drop. What is the worst that can happen.

Oils, or any substance for that matter, which is not food safe must be labeled Non GRAS - not generally regarded as safe. In this country, at least. You were right to question the rose oil. At least you likely aren't out a significant investment.

:) :) Guys, you sounds really funny about the rose oil. I do not know what exactly you've bought, but if it's organic, that mean you will never have any problems. I've drunk a lot of the Bulgarian Rose water, becouse it is good for million things in my body. I use it a lot for cooking and cocktails making, so do not worry to use it in whatever you feel.

I recently made some Turkish Delight and added some rose oil.. just 2 drops.. it gave a lovely fragrance and nobody had any side-effects. So I would say that you could safely use it occasionally, but very sparingly! ;)
