It should not be used during pregnancy and by persons suffering from epilepsy or high blood pressure.
Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
Rosemary is also very effective at helping painful & stiff joints and arthritis.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

I love rosemary oil for its wonderful properties - particularly for the relief of painful and aching muscles after working out. The most recent bottle I received smells very synthetic. It was a bit of a disappointment.
Soil is generally a high quality product.

I mix rosemary in an oil burner with some bergamot, and lavender if I feel like a pick me up. Find it so refreshing and it really lifts your spirits. Always great after a long day.

Good for keeping flies away from the food table at summer braais and picnics. I just use it in my oil burner and it works a treat :)
I use a few drops in my conditioner, gives my hair a beautiful shine and makes it soft.
