Rosemary is one of the most popular kitchen herbs. Rosemary essential oil’s herbaceous, woody scent makes it a popular addition to fragrances. If you are into perfumery, you’ll love its complicated, multi-layered scent.
Apart from its wonderful aroma, Tunisian rosemary oil is full of health benefits. As with most herbaceous essential oils, it has antioxidant properties and antimicrobial properties.
You can use it to create disinfectants with other antimicrobial essential oils such as Hungarian oregano oil or Ceylon Cinnamon oil.
Dull, unhealthy-looking hair? Create your own hair salve with rosemary oil for an instant perk up. With regular use, you’ll notice your hair gain volume and shine.
Rosemary oil has long been hailed for its memory boosting and mental clarity-inducing properties. Diffuse 2 drops of rosemary oil with 1 drop of Mysore sandalwood oil or Queensland buddha wood oil to reduce stress and clear your mind before making important decisions.
Where is it sourced?
Tunisian rosemary oil is a coastal, mediterranean herb. It grows well in the dry, temperate climates of the mediterranean.
A woody shrub which grows upto 2 metres high, the leaves are plucked in the afternoon so the oils are at their most concentrated. They are then steam distilled to produce the essential oils we all use.
Tunisian Rosemary has higher concentrations of 1,8 cineole, a compound that has been shown to reduce phlegm, clear the lungs, and stimulate blood flow when used in massage oils.
How to use
Heavy hair loss? Dull brittle hair? You need Tunisian rosemary oil to restore your lovely locks.
Just add 5 drops of Tunisian rosemary essential oil to 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and massage onto your scalp. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse/leave it on. Do this at least 3 times a week to see a healthy head of hair.
Important exam coming up? Clear your mind and stimulate your memory by inhaling rosemary oil before you go take the test. Just diffuse 3 drops of rosemary oil with 2 drops of frankincense oil.
Never use any essential oil directly on your skin. Always dilute.
Rosemary oil should be diluted with 1 drop of rosemary oil in a 10ml bottle, 8-12 drops in a 30 ml bottle.
If ingesting, the ratio should be 1 drop of rosemary oil to about 100ml (3.5 oz) of liquid. You can add it to your tea for a calming brew.
Best carrier oil pairing: Tunisian Rosemary oil blends well with avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and olive oil. It also goes well with other carrier oils such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil.
But for best results, blend it with similar Mediterranean origin carrier oils.
