This or That: What's the Difference Between our Rosemarys?

This or That: What's the Difference Between our Rosemarys?

When you think of Rosemary, you might remember a warm day in the garden. The aroma of the tender herb, permeated the air as it was gently warmed by the sun. Or, you may think of homemade Rosemary bread- freshly buttered and delectably hot. Well, the goodness doesn’t stop there!

As you may have noticed, we offer not one, but two types of Rosemary essential oil. We started offering multiple Rosemarys by popular demand, but for those who aren’t sure what the difference is between the two, we wanted to highlight one of our favorite oils in this week’s, This or That.

A Note on Chemotypes

Based on the environment, some plants may produce varying natural constituents, creating different uses and therapeutic benefits in the oils they produce. These different plant varieties are called “chemotypes.” The Rosemarys we offer are chemotype cineole, and camphor.

Rosemary Moroccan ct. Cineole

Pronounced sin-ee-ole, this variety of Rosemary is high in, you guessed it, 1,8-cineole. When you see this constituent in an oil’s GC/MS report, you should think “respiratory system.” This is because 1,8-cineole has the ability to reduce inflammation, kill off bacteria and viruses, and open up nasal passages and lungs by breaking down mucus. Rosemary ct. cineole may also stimulate hair growth and reduce dandruff. Beyond that, our Rosemary ct. cineole contains a significant amount pinene (α) which aids in reducing spasmodic coughing and breathing, making this your go to oil for respiratory issues. The goodness doesn’t stop there as exciting new research is being released showing the effectiveness of Rosemary ct. cineole on improving cognitive function and memory. It's refreshing, vibrant aroma gives this oil the capability to be energy boosting as well.

Rosemary Spanish ct. Camphor

If Rosemary ct. cineole is high in cineole, can you guess what Rosemary ct. camphor is high in? Correct! Essential oils high in camphor are great for relieving muscle aches, increasing circulation and also acting as a breathing aid with different respiratory issues. Thus, Rosemary ct. camphor works wonderfully in sports massages, as it increases circulation, penetrating muscle aches and joint pain. Don’t just take our word for it. Try Rosemary for yourself, and see why this is one unforgettable oil!

Moss and Oliver, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, (2012), Plasma 1,8-cineole correlates with cognitive performance following exposure to rosemary essential oil aroma.

Hi Alissa! Rosemary Spanish should be used with caution around children under 12 years old. Rosemary Moroccan should not be used with children under 12 years old. Both Rosemarys can be used with pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Which of these (or is it neither) is safe to use around kids? What about pregnancy/breastfeeding?

Hi Katie! Out of the two Rosemarys that we offer, I would say Rosemary Spanish is closer to the aroma you’re looking for.

Hello! I have a question in regards to aroma. I am searching for a rosemary EO that has that woody, nutty, almost savory, robust rosemary scent to it like my r.o. plant. From what I understand, I would want something less camphorous in aroma. Could you recommend which smells more like I am searching for? Thank you!

Hi AnLouise! We find that both work for these purposes, but Rosemary Spanish is more often used.

Hello! Which Rosemary would be best for use in hair care products for hair growth and health?

Edens Garden

Hi Martina! Rosemary ct. cineole has no recommended max dilution and Rosemary ct. camphor has a max topical dilution of 16.5%, whereas Rosemary ct. verbenone has a max topical dilution of 6.5%. Therefore, both Rosemarys we offer are better suited for skincare in this sense. At this time we have no plans of adding this third Rosemary to our collection, but you never know what’s in store at Edens Garden!

I am interested in the 3rd Rosmary chemotype that is called “Verbenone”, as it contains less camphor and is more suitable for skin care. Will you carry this at some point?

Can you use this rosemary essential oil in cooking? I have a friend who buys her oils through another company and uses the rosemary and oregano essential oils in her spaghetti sauce. Could you do that with these?

Hi Mary! That’s hard to say as aroma is subjective, but in my opinion, Rosemary Spanish has an aroma closer to Rosemary plants that I’ve experienced.

Hi Renee! Diffusing Rosemary is a great way to experience this oil and obtain its benefits.

Hi Melissa! Ask the supplier what chemotype the Rosemary they offer is, or ask to view their Rosemary’s GC/MS report and check what the chemotype is that way. If you would like to try both of our Rosemarys, but only keep one, we offer a 30 day return policy if you are ever unsatisfied with a product.

Hi
I normally use essential oils labeled simply “rosemary” I love that fragrance. How would I know which of the two would compare to the singular “rosemary” essential oils sold by others?

Hi Awin! Thank you for pointing this out. We’ve edited this article for accuracy. Studies have shown that Rosemary ct. cineole helps with memory retention.

Hi Bevelyn! You can diffuse it or use it a personal inhaler alone, or create a synergy of other oils that are beneficial to the respiratory system such as Eucalyptus (all), Cajeput, Camphor, Pine, Cypress, Spruce or Saro.
