Veriditas Botanicals is proud to offer two different 100% certified organic varieties of Rosemary, Rosemary cineol and Rosemary verbenone. These two varieties are the same genus, species and carry the same Latin binomial but are different chemotypes meaning that they are selected for their abundance of specific organic compounds in this case cineole or verbenone. The difference is clear when one takes time to enjoy their aromas them side by side; the cineol is more minty then the more herbaceous and fresh/ green verbenone. The cineol chemotype is more cooling and stimulating in scent and has an affinity for respiratory/ circulatory health; verbenone has some interesting ketones and is much better for skin care. Spacifically for reducing puffy eyes, and amazing skin tone regeneration and elasticity. Also, acting as a mucolytic in sinus and lung formulas.
In Ayurveda rosemary is an excellent oil for finding balance during spring time as it deepens and improves breathing, is stimulating and decongesting for the skin, respiratory system, muscles and the mind. It reduces excess kapha which is the heavy and wet elements commonly encountered in spring time.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it empowers the mind known as ‘shen’ and works as a tonic for stimulating the flow of chi (life force energy) and blood. This is great for helping with stagnated chi, congestion and with cold achy joints. Recipes!!!
