Clear your mind and balance your mood with our 100% pure Rosemary Essential Oil.
While Rosemary is often known as a staple herb in most kitchen pantries, its essential oil should also be a staple in any aromatherapy enthusiast’s stash. The delicate, pine-needle like leaves are distilled into a versatile and fragrant essential oil. Its bright, invigorating scent promotes a balanced mood and sharpens focus.
Native to the Mediterranean, Rosemary plants flourished along sea cliffs - earning it the name “Ros marinus”, which in Latin means 'Dew of the Sea'. Rosemary comes from the same family as some other notable herbs and essential oils, including Lavender, Basil and Sage.
Records first show Rosemary was used by Greeks, Romans, Hebrews and Egyptians - to name a few. Believing the scent from the fresh garlands improved focus, ancient Greeks often wore Rosemary wreaths on their heads while studying. Rosemary became a culinary staple in Mediterranean cooking - and is still used today. Its uplifting aroma was enjoyed by ancient Egyptians as a natural incense to cleanse and purify the air - a practice prevalent in the Middle Ages believed to also keep away evil spirits and prevent the spread of the Plague.
Rosemary Oil has natural anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties - when applied to the skin, it can protect and fortify against damage-causing free radicals and also support the body's own natural healing.
Rosemary Essential Oil also helps soothe itchy scalp and supports healthy hair growth.
