Rosemary essential oil like camphor or cineol

Rosemary essential oil is a multi-faceted essential oil that can accompany you on a daily basis. With its fresh scent, it soothes, tones and calms. The queen of massage.

Rosemary oil and its relaxing properties

Rosemary essential oil is an essential oil extracted from the flowers and leaves of rosemary, an aromatic plant native to the Mediterranean basin. It has a fresh, herbaceous scent, and a pale yellow or green color. It has many therapeutic properties, but it varies depending on the chemotype, that is to say the chemical composition, of the plant.

Manufacturing of rosemary essential oil like camphor or cineol

Rosemary essential oil is made from the leaves and flowers of rosemary, an aromatic plant native to the Mediterranean basin. There are several methods for extracting rosemary essential oil, but the most common is steam distillation. Here are the steps of this process:

  • Rosemary leaves and flowers are harvested, preferably in spring or summer, when they are most fragrant.
  • They are washed and dried carefully, then placed in a still, a device that separates volatile substances from solid substances.
  • We heat water in a tank, which will transform into steam and pass through the rosemary plants. The steam will carry with it the aromatic molecules of the rosemary, which will condense in a tube cooled by cold water or ice.
  • The condensed liquid is recovered, which contains water and rosemary essential oil.
  • They are separated using an essencier, a container which allows liquids of different densities to be separated. Rosemary essential oil, lighter than water, will float on the surface and can be collected in a bottle.

The rosemary essential oil thus obtained is a colorless or slightly yellowish oil, with a fresh and herbaceous scent.

Properties of rosemary essential oil like camphor or cineol

Rosemary essential oil could have several nicknames like:

  • The essential oil of youth: this nickname highlights the regenerative and anti-aging virtues of rosemary essential oil, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and prevents skin sagging. It reduces wrinkles, fine lines and pigment spots, and restores radiance to the complexion.
  • Or the essential oil of well-being: this nickname evokes the calming and relaxing virtues of rosemary essential oil, which helps reduce stress, anxiety and sleep disorders. It also combats physical and mental fatigue, and improves mood.

Properties of rosemary essential oil, lineol type

The lineol chemotype is one of the rosemary chemotypes. It is characterized by a high content of linalool, a monoterpene alcohol which gives it virtues calming, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and regenerative. Rosemary essential oil with linalool is particularly suitable for skin care, as it promotes healing, regeneration and elasticity of the epidermis. It is also useful for relieve stress, anxiety and sleep disorders.

Properties of rosemary essential oil, camphor type

The camphor chemotype is another rosemary chemotype. It is distinguished by a high content of camphor, a monoterpene ketone which gives it virtues toning, stimulating, decongestant and analgesic. Rosemary camphor essential oil is especially indicated for muscle, joint and rheumatic pain, because it relieves spasms, contractures and inflammations. It is also effective for circulation disorders, such as heavy legs, varicose veins or cellulite.

Rosemary essential oil is therefore an essential oil with multiple benefits, which can help you improve your health and well-being. At Sowé, we use 2 types of rosemary.
