Rosemary essential oil has become one of the most popular essential oils used in aromatherapy, due to its wide array of health benefits. The oil assists with hair care, skincare, circulation of energy and blood, and muscle aches and pains. The verbenone variety of rosemary is a less intense fragrance than the cineol variety, which allows clarifying of ones emotions.
The name rosemary is derived from the Latin words ros marinus, which means, Rose of the Sea. Rosemary essential oil has been used since the 13th century, as it was a symbol of fidelity, wisdom, and love. Rosemary was also thought to bring protection from diseases, as it was an ingredient used in the well-known thieves oil. Bandits used thieves oil in the 15th century for protection from the plague, as they ransacked many plague-infected homes.

Methods of Usage:
Neat: Place a drop or two directly onto clean and intact skin. A couple drops on the wrists, shoulders, temples or neck imparts a strong woodsy and honey-like aroma. Note: Helichrysum should not be used undiluted on facial skin, and should only be used undiluted on the skin for fragrance purposes only, as it is too concentrated to be healing when used neat.
Blended with Carrier: Use 5 drops per 1 TBL of carrier oil such as grapeseed, rosehip, jojoba or hazelnut oils, and massage over any area where you would like for healing to occur.
Bath: Place 8 drops into 3 handfuls of bath salt and disperse, or add 8 drops to vodka or whole milk and disperse.
Shower: Soak for at least 3 minutes in steamy shower, then with the water off or turned away from the body, allow 5-7 drops to fall in the palm of the hand and distribute all over wet body (not face). The oil will penetrate very quickly, and the body can be rinsed again, or not.
