Rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis CT 1,8 Cineol) is a steam-distilled oil taken from the flowering plant. It smells like… you guessed it, rosemary! But much stronger than the plant, very herbaceous, and woody with “evergreen undertones”.
It’s said to affect the immune system, respiratory system, and nervous system, as well as other benefits and uses (many of which are listed below). In addition to its many physical properties, rosemary is also said to have an effect on the memory, opening the conscious mind, and assisting in learning.
BENEFITS OF ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL
- Supports healthy digestion

Emotionally and spiritually, these affects spell the potential for mental expansion, clarity, and insight, something that can be especially useful during transition and change. It helps us to process what’s happening around us and within us consciously, instead of burying it with distractions. In doing so it can create both a sense of trust in the process of Life, as well as confidence in our ability to navigate it with ease.
