Rosemary essential oil – Tunisia
This rosemary essential oil is a relatively low camphor type and is a good choice for most aromatherapy applications. Our Organic Rosemary is even lower in camphor.
The essential oil of rosemary is widely used and has been described as having a classic herbaceous scent with subtle minty and woody undertones. This selection has slightly more top-note impact than our organic rosemary but mid-notes still predominate. Aromatically, this oil blends well with eucalyptus, frankincense, elemi, thyme, pine, lavender, tea tree, peppermint, and most spice oils.
Rosemary essential oil is a traditional choice of aromatherapists for use in massage oils and baths for people experiencing stiff, sore muscles and/or symptoms of the common cold. Aromatherapists trained in Chinese Medicine have sometimes suggested that it’s a supportive choice for people experiencing achy joints of a cold, cramping nature.
Rosemary herb was historically viewed as an herb that supported vitality and self-confidence. According to Gabriel Mojay, it was an age-old “remedy” for gloom and apathy that warms the Spirit and makes it bold.
