Rosemary Essential Oil (ct. Verbenone) is the finest of all Rosemaries. It nourishes skin, regenerates cells and stimulates the mind just like other Rosemaries, but it has one special addition - it also strengthens the liver because it contains 45% verbenone. That particular compound makes the Verbenone chemotype the right choice for anyone looking to regenerate tissue...hair and skin included!
If you are confused about which chemotype is right for your blending needs please take the time to consider this:
Camphor - is great for massage oils to increase circulation.
1,8 cineole - is best for supporting respiratory function.
Verbenone - is regenerating, and is the best choice for skin care. It also has a mucolytic effect on the respiratory system.
