Description: Organic Rosemary essential oil is obtained from the leaves and branches of Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) through steam distillation. The yield in essential oil from the plant material is between 1 and 3%.
Specific Characteristics: Organic Rosemary essential oil is a fluid, colorless to slightly yellow, and sometimes greenish liquid. It has a spicy, invigorating, and characteristic herbal aroma. The oil easily dissolves in alcohol (1:1, ethanol), vegetable oils, and other essential oils. It is almost insoluble in water.
The main component is the ketone verbenone. Other compounds, such as pinene, alpha-terpineol, limonene, cariofilene, myrcene, P-cymene, and oxycinnamyl acetate, are present in smaller concentrations.
Chemotype: Depending on the environment and cultivation conditions, Rosemary can produce various natural compounds leading to oils with different scents and therapeutic benefits. Plants producing oils with different chemical compositions are characterized by chemotypes. Essentially, the chemotype defines the dominant component in the oil. This specific organic Rosemary essential oil is defined by the chemotype ct. Verbenone, meaning that verbenone is the dominant component.
Applications: Organic Rosemary essential oil ct. Verbenone contains much less camphor and is milder and more aromatic compared to the Borneol-Camphor chemotype.
