Conventionally we would call this oil the camphor chemotype of Rosemary. Most of the oil referred to as camphor type Rosemary comes from Spain. The important feature of this oil - in our humble opinion - is that it is an authentic essential oil of Rosemary, growing wild at higher altitudes in Provence. Despite the camphor content, the fragrance of this oil is gentle and green. From the high planes of Haute Provence.
In “l’aromatherapie exactement” Rosemary camphor is recommended for muscular contractions, cramps and cerebral hypertension among other things.
Historical Aspects of Rosemary:
Apparently Rosemary was not used in antiquity as spice or as a healing herb. Only the Romas used to burn it to improve air quality during their feasts. North of the Alps Rosemary appears for the first time in the herb garden of the famous monastery in St. Gallen. In the Middle Ages it was believed that Rosemary would chase away bad spirits. For the English philosopher Thomas Moore Rosemary is a indicative of memory and friendship, in Shakespeare’s Hamlet Rosemary it is the symbol of fidelity.
