Our pure Organic Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Rosmarinus officinalis, a perennial herb that produces lovely small pastel flowers.
The natural composition of rosemary essential oils can vary based on origin, climate and other factors. Organic Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil naturally contains less cineole and camphor than Rosemary Cineole Essential Oil or Rosemary Camphor Essential Oil. Therefore, our Organic Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil possesses a pleasant aroma that is characteristically that of rosemary, but it is more herabaceous, sweet and woody and much less camphorous in aroma than Rosemary Cineole or Rosemary Camphor chemotype oils. Those who don't often like the aroma of traditional Rosemary Essential Oil may find that they prefer the less camphorous aroma of our Organic Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil.
Organic Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil is comprised of significantly more monoterpenes, including a-Pinene, than most other rosemary oil chemotypes.

It is well suited for use within aromatherapy, skin and hair care, holistic wellbeing, massage, cleaning, soap making, and fragrancing applications.
