Rosemary oil is one of the most popular essential oils, especially in the Mediterranean region where it is also used as a culinary herb. Many dishes are cooked with rosemary oil and freshly plucked rosemary leaves. The rosemary bush belongs to the mint family which includes basil, lavender, myrtle, and sage.

The health benefits of rosemary essential oil made it a favorite of Paracelsus, a renowned physician, who made significant contributions to herbal medicine during the sixteenth century. Paracelsus valued rosemary oil due to its ability to strengthen the entire body. He believed that rosemary oil had the ability to heal delicate organs such as the liver, brain, and heart.
