Rosemary leaf oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)

Also available in Vitality.

Rosemary is a flavorful herb that’s celebrated for its role in the culinary world, especially in Italian dishes. Rosemary Vitality essential oil lends a uniquely herbaceous taste to every dish it’s featured in, making it perfect for many savory recipes.

Rosemary essential oil is steam distilled from a perennial shrub with needle-like leaves that can remain evergreen in warmer climates. The botanical, which is part of the mint family, is native to Mediterranean regions and has blue or purple flowers that give it an understated beauty. 

Rosemary is an essential ingredient in the legendary “Thieves Vinegar” and the modern interpretation, Thieves essential oil.

As a dietary supplement, Rosemary Vitality is loved for its naturally occurring constituents eucalyptol and alpha-pinene, which can help maintain overall wellness.

It was listed in Hildegard’s Medicine, a compliation of early german medicines by highly regarded Benedictine herbalist Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179).

Until recently, French hospitals used rosemary to disinfect the air.
