Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a member of the Lamiaceae family, native to the Mediterranean region. It is an evergreen shrub with leaves similar to pine needles that grows well in the Seattle area - we have a large plant in our yard in Snohomish and had one in front of our Seattle shop as well as a plant in our Seattle yard.

Rosemary essential oil is extracted from the aerial parts of plant by steam distillation.

Mentally stimulating to provide a pick-me-up when used as an environmental Spritzer. Useful as a toner for normal to oily skin. AVOID in cases of high blood pressure and in the first trimester of pregnancy.
The name rosemary comes from the Latin rosemarinus derived from "dew" (ros) and "sea" (marinus), thus literally "dew of the sea" because it can survive with very little soil water when it is in a humid area.
AVOID in cases of high blood pressure and in the first trimester of pregnancy. Refrigerate when not in use. For external use only.
