Rosemary essential oil

Overview and benefits 


Rosemary is a culinary and healing herb. This extraordinary herb is native to the Mediterranean region, where it’s been used as food and medicine for ages. 


Though rosemary is best known for food seasoning all around the world, it has other benefits as well, especially health benefits. Ancient Greek and Romans have known about this secret and reaped the health benefits of rosemary oil.


Rosemary leaves are known to have certain compounds that have disease prevention and health-promoting properties. Rosemary essential oil is rich in anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant rosmarinic acid, and anticancer properties. 


Extract method or part of the plant used and origin 


Rosemary oil may be extracted by three different processes, which involve steam distillation, water distillation, and controlled instantaneous decompression.


Rosemary is the plant from the Lamiaceae family, genus Rosmarinus. This plant is harvested worldwide due to its essential oils, and extracts, as a spice, and due to different biological activities.


Fragrance and notes 


Rosemary Oil is a pale yellow or almost colorless, mobile liquid of strong, fresh, woody-herbaceous, somewhat minty-forest-like odor. The “high” fresh notes vanish quickly, yielding to a clean, woody balsamic body note which tones out in a dry herbaceous, but very pleasant and tenacious, bitter-sweet note.


  • Safety and storage

    The Rosemary essential oil must be stored in a cool dry place, away from light. Always do a patch test before applying directly to the skin.
