Aroma: Rosemary essential oil has a fresh, strong, clear, penetrating, woody, balsamic, herbal minty, herbaceous, sweet, slightly medicinal, camphoraceous and herbaceous scent.

History: Its name means "dew of the sea" because Rosemary naturally grows near the Mediterranean Sea. Rosemary has been used medicinally for several thousand years. Rosemary was used in Roman burial rites, and that practice continued well into the Middle Ages when it was customary to lay branches of rosemary on the coffin at funerals. Its leaves were traditionally burned in hospitals to purify the air.

Common Uses:

BODYCARE: Rosemary essential oil improves dry or mature skin, eases lines and wrinkles, and heals burns and wounds. It can also clear acne, blemishes, or dull dry skin by fighting bacteria and regulating oil secretions. It improves circulation and can reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and varicose veins. Rosemary essential oil nourishes the scalp and keeps hair looking healthy and shiny. Rosemary stimulates cell renewal and is considered effective in increasing hair growth. It normalizes excessive oil secretions and improves most scalp problems, particularly dandruff and seborrhea. Rosemary oil is also helpful in treating cellulite.
