There are three main types of rosemary. The best one for aromatherapy use is the eucalyptol (cineol) chemotype, from Tunisia, Morocco and Italy. The camphor chemotype comes from Spain, and the verbenone chemotype comes from Algeria and Corsica. The latter is contra-indicated due to neuro-toxicity. Absolute Aromas supplies the finest quality Tunisian Rosemary, which is the superior product.
Rosemary is the classic "get up and go" oil. Try adding 3 drops of Rosemary, 2 drops of Lemon and 1 drop of Peppermint to a tepid bath before an important occasion.
Adding a few drops to the final rinsing water for dark hair can help keep a natural shine.
Do not use Rosemary during the first 4 months of pregnancy.
