Rosemary is an aromatic evergreen shrub that happily grows all over its range with very little water or maintenance required. It’s very fragrant, has pointed leaves and white, blue, pink or purple flowers. Rosemary is related to many other medicinal and culinary herbs. Rosemary comes from the latin "ros marinus", meaning “dew of the sea.” It happily grows wild throughout its entire range.
Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean but can grow in a wide variety of climates. Special cultivars can withstand extreme cold down to -20C. Rosemary is drought resistant too, and flourishes in places like California. It can be an upright bush, or climbing. It flowers in both spring and summer intemperate climates but can blossom almost continuously in the heat. It’s a really hardy plant that, in the right setting, will give a lot of scent and beauty with very little maintenance. Sometimes it just flowers for the heck of it.
Rosemary in general finds much use in perfumery in citrus colognes, lavender waters, fougères, pine needle fragrances, frankincense, all spices, and Oriential fragrances, in colognes, room deodorants, household sprays, insecticides, etc. Rosemary oil blends well with lavandin, lavender, citronella, thyme, pine needle, labdanum, frankincense, spice oils, petigrain, cedars, etc.
The 1,8-cineole type of rosemary is usually considered the most useful in all respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma and sinusitis.He quote Mailhebiau as recommending Rosmary cineole as an excellent rememdy for headaches, blended with peppermint and lavender. He further quote Mailhebiau as comparing the personality of rosemary cineole as a cheerful, youthful and sincere character.
Rosemary oil is a pale yellow or almost colorless, mobile liquid of strong, fresh, woody-herbaceous, somewhat minty-forest-like odor. The “high” fresh notes vanish quickly, yielding to a clean, woody-balsamic bodynote which tones out in a dry-herbaceous, but very pleasant and tenacious, bitter-sweet note. There is considerable variation between the different kinds of rosemary oil.
