Rosemary essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the Rosemary plant through steam distillation.

Rosemary essential oil is a popular choice in aromatherapy for its ability to promote focus, clarity, and concentration. It is also commonly used in skincare products for its cleansing and toning properties. Additionally, rosemary essential oil has been traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. Studies have shown rosemary essential oil had a benefit on spatial, short-term memory.

Rosemary essential oil has at least 3 different concentrations of its major compounds: camphor, cineol and verbenone. This oil develops a different chemical composition depending on the location and growing conditions of the plant such as temperature and rain.
