Three different kinds of Rosemary? What’s the difference?

The Organic Rosemary that’s high in Camphor may be called ‘borneol type’. It’s typically grown in Spain and the region of former Yugoslavia. This essential oil of Rosemary is used to relax muscles and to stimulate elimination from the liver and kidneys and may have an adverse effect to homeopathic remedies because of the high (up to 30%) camphor.

The Wild type of Rosemary is the best choice for treating respiratory infections with inflamed mucous membranes and increased mucous production. This Rosemary high in Cineole is typically grown in Africa.

The Organic Rosemary that’s high in verbenone may be called Type III and is often sourced from Southern France and Corsica. Because this chemotype is higher in monoterpenes it is often added to skin preparations. It has a soft floral presence, slightly Lavender actually.
