Rosemary is one of the most popular essential oils and the herb is well known for its culinary uses.  It has a strong, herbal aroma with minty and woody undertones that blend well with lavender, thyme, pine, peppermint, cedarwood and many spice oils. Organic Rosemary Essential Oil has been said by some aromatherapists to have strengthening and fortifying properties and since ancient times the herb has been regarded as one that enhances memory.

Organic Rosemary essential oil is appropriate for use by inhalation or diluted topical application. Do not apply this essential oil near or to the face/nostrils of children or infants under five years of age.


Rosmarinus officinalis is one member of a genus containing two species to five species, depending on which botanist you ask. and is the one typically used for essential oil production and cited in aromatherapy references. There are several chemotypes of Rosmarinus officinalis and this selection is a cineol type

Historical Uses:

Unless otherwise noted, information on historical uses refers to herbal preparations of the plant and NOT the plant’s essential oil.

Rosemary is one of the earliest plants know to have been used for medicine and it’s one of the herbs that was highly regarded as a preventative and remedy for the plague … so much so that the price of it during that time went through the roof and at the height of the plague a handful of the herb is said to have cost a month’s salary for the average person.

There’s a long standing association between rosemary and memory and the Egyptians placed it in the tombs of pharos to help them recall their former life. It was sacred to the Greeks and Romans and was symbolic of loyalty, remembrance, and learning. It was also one of the main ingredients in Queen of Hungary Water which was credited with transforming the extremely ill, gout-ridden Queen of Hungary into a healthy, vibrant woman.

 Herbal preparations of Rosemary have been widely used in the traditional medicines of many countries, especially as an antibiotic, but also for respiratory problems, liver congestion, digestive problems, muscular and rheumatic pain and hair problems in people who have dark hair.

 Safety Considerations

The safety of Rosemary Essential Oil for aromatherapeutic use varies considerably from sample to sample. Camphor is one of the natural constituents found in rosemary essential oil and the amount of camphor varies greatly based on the variety  of rosemary, where the plants were grown and how they were distilled. Since camphor has been shown to have some neurotoxic potential,  we recommend that for most applications you should choose a rosemary essential oil with a relatively low camphor content. Our Organic Rosemary Essential Oil cineole chemotype from South Africa has been chosen for its low camphor content. Most companies selling essential oils do not provide information on which chemotype they are offering and some of these products will be camphor chemotypes.

Rosemary essential oil is one that is best used in small amounts and it should be avoided all together by those who have a history of seizures. Some authors have stated that the oil should not be used during pregnancy or by those who have high blood pressure. Do not apply this essential oil to or near the nostrils of infants or children under five years of age. Do not use this essential oil if you are taking homoeopathic remedies as it may negate their effects. In addition, all general precautions (see below) should be observed when using this essential oil.
