Have you ever smelled Rosemary in the rain? Its so delightful its almost intoxicating. Its the essence of fresh air from a newly washed garden. However, most Rosemary oils fail to capture that radiant quality, instead being a bit pungent and overpowering. Not this one! It is so like the real thing you’ll want to pick its flowers.
Rosemary meaning “Rose of the Sea” has an energizing effect and can be a tonic during periods of stress or to aid memory and concentration whilst studying (it is often called the ‘herb of remembrance’). It has a similar ‘clearing’ action and scent to Eucalyptus and is a very popular aromatherapy oil for respiratory problems in winter. Rosemary essential oil is also often included in aromatherapy blends for the joints and muscles.
