A precious original: Rosemary

Rosemary type verbenone Corsica 2021:
The Soft Surprise

The verbenone chemotype of Rosemary is one of the treasures at the very origins of aromatherapy. It is one of the precious originals from the island of Corsica. Inspired by the success of the Corsican original, Rosemary verbenone has also been offered originating from South Africa or, for a moment, from California’s Santa Cruz area. It is the Corsican provenance, however, which establishes the standard for softness among the varied Rosemary oils. This year’s harvest is as mild and beautiful as an essential oil can be.


The Site: Coastal Corsica

Rosemary type cineole originates mostly from North Africa, especially Tunisia and Morocco. The North African sites are inland and have some elevation. The camphor type of Rosemary grows wild on the hills and plateaux of Provence and also in Spain. The elevation contributes to the high camphor content.

The verbenone type is cultivated in Corsica’s low lying coastal areas, which seemingly make for the 5-10% verbenone content and a rather low camphor concentration, providing the oil with an inimitable gentleness.

Therapeutic Properties

According to French Style aromatherapy Rosmarinus officinalis ct. verbenone is a powerful expectorant and mucolytic (softening hardened mucus). Accordingly, one of its main uses is for upper respiratory infections and symptoms of the flu. It balances the nervous system, regulates ovarian activity and releases blockages in the solar plexus.
