This certified organic rosemary essential oil is chemotype camphor and is steam distilled from the flowers, leaves, and twigs of a rosemary plant rich in the naturally occurring chemical component, camphor. We love using this essential oil, cultivated in the Spanish landscape, to help relieve minor pain and inflammation, especially relating to unwanted muscle tension.
The richly aromatic flowers, leaves, and twigs of the Rosmarinus officinalis ct camphor plant create an herbaceous, strong, resinous, woodsy essential oil. In addition to helping with minor pain management, this particular rosemary essential oil is also helpful when looking to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, as well as unwanted bacteria, fungus, and viruses. This essential oil is also a fantastic choice when looking to promote healthy respiratory function. We love putting this essential oil in an unscented lotion - with eucalyptus dives, white pine, frankincense, and lavender - and applying to the back and chest throughout the day when fighting a cold or experiencing flu-like symptoms. Emotionally and energetically, this rosemary essential oil encourages mental clarity as well as energizes and uplifts the mind during challenging moments. It can also help clear negativity and inspire a more positive general outlook.
