Rosemary essential oil
Rosemary is one of the most famous Provence's aromatic plants. It is a nice perennial schrub that grows up to 1 meter, with erected branches and dark-green, needle-shaped leaves. They emit a powerful, bracing, very aromatic smell when crushed. It is native to the northern Mediterranean Basin, along with some areas in north Africa. The flowering branches are harvested in the wild and then left to dry in the shade for one or two days prior to distillation.
Slow extraction of the oil is done by traditional process, through steam, in dedicated equipment. The essential oil exudes a potent, medicinal, camphoraceous fragrance with herbaceous and green notes. Main components are Cineol-1.8, α Pinene, Camphor and Camphene.
