About Rosemary, Verbenone Essential Oil

Its warming, invigorating qualities stimulate blood flow and tissue regeneration, which in turn brightens dull skin, and effectively treats acne, eczema and psoriasis. The oil is also beneficial to a variety of hair and scalp conditions.

As a superior tonic, rosemary relieves muscular stiffness, cramping, and aches and pains of the joints, and lessens the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism. It has the highest hydrogen content of all essential oils, making it powerfully warming and stimulating. An expectorant, rosemary essential oil provides support for the respiratory system, relieving colds, coughs, congestion, and bronchitis. The brain and nervous system also benefit from rosemary's stimulating properties, and its ability to enhance mental clarity and lessen fatigue.
