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.

Len and Shirley Price report that the Rosemary Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 16-18% alcohols, 54-56% ketones, 12-13% esters (these ranges do not include the water present in the hydrosol) and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, 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.]
