Materia Aromatica – Rosemary verbenone – 5ml

£9.10

Rosemary verbenone has a sweet, green, citrusy aroma with herbaceous notes. Like common rosemary, verbena-scented rosemary has fortifying and uplifting qualities, but is more gentle and soothing – probably because it is cool and dry in nature. Rosemary is associated chiefly with the Fire Element (heart), yet is a good all-rounder. Psychologically, rosemary can impart positivity, confidence and concentration.

Rosemary has been used as a purifying and protective herb in many ancient civilisations. The oil was first distilled in the 13th century and was used medicinally and as a perfume.

About Materia Aromatica

Materia Aromatica supplies oils essential oils harvested by growers and distillers of organic crops, buying as much as possible from smaller farms or family enterprises. This has the advantage that these farmers distil their own freshly harvested materials themselves. They carry out steam distillation on a small scale at low pressure in stainless steel tanks to maximise the essential oils’ therapeutic value and to retain the individuality and life force of the crops from which they originate. Every batch of oil is dated, numbered and tested to ensure the quality of the oil.

Prices

Oils from organically grown or wild-crafted crops are generally more expensive, as the term itself is a guarantee of purity and wholeness. Organically grown crops must adhere to strict guidelines so the oils are sold in their pure form, without dilution or the addition of any synthetic oils. Picking, carried out by hand in the wild, requiring extra labour, is time consuming and costly. This explains the price variations between two oils of the same species such as Materia Aromatica’s organic and wild varieties of Lavandula angustifolia.
