Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol) has a fresh, herbaceous, sweet, slightly medicinal aroma and is considered an energizing oil.
Rosemary oil is steam distilled from a perennial shrub with needle-like leaves that can remain evergreen in warmer climates. The botanical, which is part of the mint family, is native to Mediterranean regions and has blue or purple flowers that give it an understated beauty. The familiar scent of Rosemary essential oil—as well as its robust, herbaceous aroma—has made it popular in aromatic and personal care products.
Rosemary essential oil uses include topical application and direct inhalation, and its complex, woodsy aroma can help create an energizing environment and promote a sense of clarity. In fact, you can find this powerful oil in Young Living’s Thieves® and En-R-Gee™ blends.
The name of the oil is derived from the latin words for dew of the sea (ros + marinus). According to folklore history, rosemary originally had white flowers, however, they turned red after the Virgin Mary laid her cloak on the bush.
Since the time of ancient Greece (about 1000 BC) rosemary was burnt as incense. Later cultures believed that it warded off evil spirits, a practice that eventually became adopted by the sick.
Rosemary has an approximate ORAC of 3,309 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
