he fresh, balsamic, almost forest-like, and softly penetrating aroma of our organic Rosemary ct Verbenone is, in a word, beautiful! The beauty of its finely balanced aroma can be attributed in part to traces of volatile nitrogen compounds of high odor intensity, which occur in concentrations from less than one part per billion to the parts per million range. It is a true example of the potency of the kingdom of plants and their essences, and it is no wonder they elicit our grateful respect.
Rosemary is a well known herb native to the Mediterranean region, abundantly growing wild in Spain, France, Corsica, Italy, Sardinia, all states of the former Yugoslavia, Russia, Turkey, the Middle East, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and others. The odor character of Rosemary oil varies according to where the plants grow (the altitude and climate), what plant parts are distilled, and whether the plant material is fresh or dried when distilled. The plant was known to be sacred to the ancient Greeks and Romans who used it as a symbol of regeneration and employed its aromatic qualities in incense.8
