For centuries, rosemary has been a prized plant deployed in a wide variety of ways, including in food, aromatherapy and on the skin and hair. In addition, rosemary essential oil has antibacterial, detoxicant and anti-inflammatory properties as well as documented effects for boosting mental activity, stimulating digestion and relieving respiratory problems.
Origin and Composition
Used since early Roman times, the small, woody evergreen bush has a strong, refreshing herbal smell with camphorous qualities and is clear in color with a watery consistency. Originally from Asia, Rosemary oil is extracted from the plants flowering tops via steam distillation.
Used most often as a way to overcome mental fatigue, depression and to lubricate the skin and hair, rosemary can also be effective at repelling insects. This pure essential oil is certified 100% organic and is grown using a method and in an environment that has been confirmed to be free of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and herbicidal residues for a period of three consecutive years (and maintains all appropriate certifications which are available upon request).
