We love using this essential oil, cultivated in the South African landscape, to help support healthy lung activity, especially relating to congestion caused by a cold or the flu.

This essential oil helps to reduce the presense of unwanted bacterial, fungal, and viral activity. This rosemary essential oil is helpful in supporting healthy, clear skin and may help heal older scars as it is also skin rejuvenating.

If oxidized it can cause skin irritation or sensitization. The literature suggests that people with epilepsy, high blood pressure, and pregnant women should avoid Rosemary because of the camphor content. It can be a stimulating oil; avoid nighttime use. With children, use at no more than 1% (5-6 drops total in 1 ounce of carrier). According to Rodney Young and Robert Tisserand, they believe that there is no case for contraindicating any essential oil in someone with high blood pressure.
The suggested shelf life is 4 years.
