Out of the darkness and into the light… Rosemary’s fortifying, herby goodness is not just for roasting birds in the oven. This strong, penetrating oil comes from the plant that was sacred to ancient Greeks and Romans, for whom Rosemary symbolized regeneration. Rosemary oil enlivens the mind, restoring clarity and vigour and aiding the memory. It is a wake-up call for the senses, energizing and activating the brain and central nervous system while providing a detoxifying effect on the liver.
