Aroma: This essential oil is wonderfully herbaceous, fresh and clearing rosemary that works well as a middle to top note in most blends. It blends well with citrus oils and woody oils like Cedarwood and Ho Wood.
Personal notes: When using this particular rosemary, it is important to note its 1,8 cineole content as it can be a good replacement for eucalyptus. I have used this particular oil in respiratory support blends, joint support blends and muscular support blends. It is a wonderful essential oil that is uplifting and refreshing in the morning as well. For its chemotype, I consider it a very multifaceted oil due to its potential and anecdotal therapeutic properties.
