Rosemary is a plant with needle-shaped leaves. It grows mainly in the Mediterranean region (Morocco, Tunisia). The oil comes from steam distillation of the flowering tops. It takes about 100 kg to obtain 2 kg of essential oil.
Rich in cineole and low in camphor, rosemary oil is mainly used in respiratory, digestive and circulatory applications.
In fact, rosemary essential oil is known to fight respiratory and ENT infections (colds, otitis, bronchitis....) thanks to its properties recognised as anti-infectious and expectorant. It is used to stimulate intellectual abilities, revitalise muscles in case of cramps or fatigue, aid digestion during heavy meals. It is also used in hair care to facilitate hair growth.
