Rosemary essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops (leaves and flowers) of the plant. It has a pleasant herbal, slightly pine woody scent with a camphory bite that is penetrating and refreshing. Usually the oil is colorless, or has a pale yellow tint. Rosemary is quite versatile in the ways that we can use and benefit from its properties. It is one of the most useful essential oils, being stimulating to the mind, spirit, and body.
To mention just a few of Rosemary's properties, the essential oil is an antioxidant, antibacterial, and also an effective natural analgesic. It is helpful in treating pain relief for conditions like arthritis, sprains, and muscular pain in general. It also stimulates circulation and the central nervous system.
Rosemary essential oil blends well with many oils and some of them are the citrus oils like lemon and bergamot, oregano, peppermint, frankincense, basil, cedarwood, clary sage, lavender, sweet marjoram, thyme, and pine. Just a few drops of Rosemary essential oil in fresh water makes a wonderful hair rinse for natural shine and good hair health. Keep rosemary in mist bottles to spray for a gentle uplift of spirits and a nudge into better clarity and focus for the mind. Use a massage oil where rosemary is a central component, for muscle soreness and to stimulate circulation. An exceptional example for arthritis or muscle pain is made by combining a carrier oil with Rosemary, black pepper, and nutmeg essential oils.
