About Rosemary Essential Oil: One of the "Oils of Protection", Rosemary verbenone is a softer, gentler version of the more common and pungent cineole variety. Herbaceous and refreshing, Rosemary verbenone is well-known for its regenerating and stimulating properties to the skin, hair, joints, respiratory and nervous systems. This organic "Rose of the Sea" is pleasant, warming, and mildly sweet.
Originally considered a holy oil for purification and healing, Rosemary verbenone now finds widespread use as a remedy for the entire family when sinuses and lungs are congested. Rosemary is effective when used with a diffuser or in direct palm inhalation, and offers relief from fatigue and overwork when added to massage oil or to a warm, aromatic bath. The energizing qualities of rosemary oil make it helpful in warming the extremities and in increasing mental clarity, self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Woody and balsamic, rosemary oil is also a very effective home cleaner—equally refreshing to your countertops as it is to your mood!
Rosemary hair oil is helpful in stimulating thin and lifeless hair and in restoring vibrant hair color and shine. Just add several drops to your favorite shampoos and conditioners for increased shine and luster.
Diffuse rosemary oil when you're in need of a clear mind and a boost of warming energy. When diffused, rosemary will also promote vitality for the whole family. This multi-purpose oil is a very helpful addition to a diffuser blend when the children become congested. Warming, clarifying and uplifting, you will also find that it can be relied upon to enhance mental clarity and to lessen a dull and hazy mind. Diffusing essential oils that possess the unique special effect for clarifying the mind is an important practice to adopt as a regular routine.
