A Nature’s Gift exclusive! We have finally received this long awaited distillation from my friend Chris Burder at Stone Rise Farms. This unique Rosemary essential oil is the rare a-pinene chemotype, with traces of your favorite conifer in its aroma. Lighter and sweeter aromatically than any Rosemary oil I have ever experienced it’s full story is told in our Blog. What the blog doesn’t tell you… some time ago I took an aromatic skincare course with Robert Tisserand, and he gave a formula using Rosemary ch a-pinene in an anti-acne blend. I questioned him, since the only rosemary chemotypes I had seen were the most common Camphor and Cineole, and the rare Verbenon. He sent me a gc analysis (the same one you see below) but would not share the source. Fast forward to a chat with an Australian friend. Come to find out, HIS Rosemary was this rare chemotype, and he had no idea that it was rare! It was his “herb Cottage” Rosemary plants, that he grew, nurtured, and distilled.
Robert Tisserand recommends this gentle rosemary in a blend to treat acne, so I would assume it is antibacterial. The high level of alpha pinene would give it refreshing respiratory qualities. It is a rare jewel, an aromatic treasure. We have no samples poured, and can not offer it in bulk or at wholesale, all of the small distillation is poured into 5 and 15 ml bottles. Enjoy!
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
