Rosemary essential oil – Tunisia
Rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. Cineole) from Tunisia is Therapeutic Quality, 100% Pure Essential Oil steam distilled from the flowering tops. This is a relatively low camphor Rosemary oil, although not as low as our Organic Rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. Cineole). It is a good choice for most aromatherapeutic applications.
Essential oil of Rosemary is widely used and has a classic herbaceous scent with subtle minty and woody undertones. This selection of Rosemary has slightly more top-note impact than our Organic Rosemary essential oil but mid-notes still predominate. Aromatically, this essential oil blends well with Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Elemi, Thyme, Pine, Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, and most spice oils.
For more information on Rosemary EO, see the product description for our Organic Rosemary Essential Oil from South Africa.
There is a good deal of variation in the amount of naturally occurring camphor found in different samples of Rosemary essential oil, and since camphor is a constituent that has some neurotoxic potential, selections that are relatively low in camphor are the safest for most aromatherapeutic applications. Our Tunisian Rosemary EO is a relatively low camphor selection.
Rosemary EO is best used in small amounts for inhalation or diluted topical application. Do not apply this essential oil to or near the nostrils of babies or children under five years of age and do not use with persons who have a history of seizures. Some authors advise that the oil should be avoided during pregnancy or by those who have high blood pressure. Don not use this essential oil if you are taking homeopathic remedies as it may negate their effects. In addition, all general precautions (see below) should be observed when using this essential oil.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
