Rosemary Essential OilArOmis
Our organic rosemary oil is steam-distilled from the flowers and leaves of the rosemary plant (Rosmarinus officinalis). Rosemary has long been used therapeutically by ancient cultures around its native Mediterranean habitat. You’ll recognize the common herb as one often used in cooking, but it has plenty of other uses and benefits.
Aromatically, rosemary smells herbaceous and slightly minty. Its active compounds include 1,8 cineole, a component that also gives eucalyptus its healing properties, and camphor.
