“Rosemary, Rosemary./ There is wonderful music in the very sound/ Of your name.” – How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying
Every time I work with Rosemary, I find myself singing that song…
What does Rosemary smell like?
To me, Rosemary smells herbaceous and a little “outdoorsy”. I liken it to Eucalyptus, but less fruity. I use Rosemary ct. Camphor (Rosemarinus Officinalis ct camphor) as the camphor gives it that deep, uplifting scent.
What can I use Rosemary for?
- Hair Care (dandruff, body, etc.)
- Sore muscles
- Stuffy nose/Colds
