Rosemary Hydrosol

Rosemary Hydrosol is a beautifully herbaceous hydrosol that smells more like fresh rosemary than does the essential oil.

Botanical Name: Rosemarinus officinalis

Aromatic Strength: Medium

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Suzanne Catty reports that Rosemary Camphor Hydrosol is energizing and stimulating. It is a mild circulatory stimulant and use helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and gout. She states that it's a noteworthy antioxidant. It is suitable for normal and oily skin and as with Rosemary Essential Oil, it is useful for hair care and combating hair loss. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 124.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Rosemary Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 16-18% alcohols, 54-56% ketones, 12-13% esters and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, antifungal, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericidal, balancing, calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, digestive, expectorant, lipolytic, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 137.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Rosemary Hydrosol revitalizes skin, restores energy and is useful for tired feet. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 174.]
