The quality of the oil is very good & the bottle was nicely packaged. I buy all my essential oils from Soulflower only after trying a few from other manufacturers and I am a happy with all my purchases.
When it comes to rosemary essential oil, I have used it in some skin products and definitely for hair, but the one way that I tend to use it is for skin oil or creams that are supposed to help with fibromyalgia. It is a great addition to cream and diffusers when someone is dealing with that or similar issues.
WHAT IS THIS OIL LIKE? This oil comes beautifully packaged and well wrapped to prevent breakage. There is no reducer in the bottle so if you are used to dispensing by dropping one drop at a time out of the bottle, this probably is not going to work well for you. However, the good news is if you have an older reducer bottle, that will probably fit into this one. That is what I did.
EYE DROPPER This does come with an eye dropper, so if you prefer to dispense that way, you can.
SIZE This oil comes in a 30ml size which is a lot of oil.
DATES This oil needs to be used in about a two year period, so if you do get it, plan to use it up. Don't try to hang onto it for long periods of time.
HOW DO I USE THIS? I have put this in a skin lotion, hair conditioner and shampoo, and also used it to diffuse.
PERFORMANCE? I like this. It has a great balanced fresh aroma and does not smell like it has additives or chemicals.
INTERNAL USE It is not recommended that you take essential oils internally. If you are a well studied specialist in essential oils, then you will know what to look for, but generally speaking, avoid using these oils internally. They are highly concentrated and can cause a lot of problems.
THE BOTTOM LINE A nice fresh balanced smelling rosemary oil, this has been great to use in my hair conditioner and shampoo, skin lotion and diffusing. There is not a reducer in the bottle, but taking one from an empty bottle worked for me.
MY RATING FOUR STARS. I would probably buy this again. It is very reasonable and seems to be of good quality. I am used to using pretty high quality essential oils, so I don't say that lightly.
Different batches of the same kind of oil can smell a bit differently, but as long as they fall within the same chemical profile they can be considered pure, and this is why some rosemary smells more like mint and other rosemary smells more like eucalyptus- because all of these plants contain some of the same sorts of chemicals in different amounts. This oil smells like rosemary- like the rosemary bushes that I have in my yard. This isn't too minty at all, but have that woodsy and true herbal, slightly medicinal clean smell that I so love. Rosemary is an oil that I normally diffuse for the scent, but sometimes I use it in blends, or if I can't find my tea tree oil, I have been known to dab it on cuts and scrapes. This comes with an eyedropper for counting out drops. Usually, I just like a drop dispenser top in the bottle itself., but this works well- it fits the bottle ok so it is useful. The bottle is amber and well labeled. It's in a nice box, and as a total package would look nice as a little gift or as part of a gift.
Rosemary has a very soothing scent. It works well to help you relax, de-stress and eases you into sleep. You can use it in a diffuser, make a room spray, or add it to bath and body products. This is a very useful essential oil. I highly recommend it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this review. I hope the information that I've provided makes your decision a little easier.
This is nice quality essential oil. I like that it comes with a convenient glass dropper. The scent lasts a long time and is good—although I got lavender and that is not my favorite scent. The dropper is convenient to give it a couple of dropper-fulls into my essential oil diffuser. The 1 ounce quantity is a generous amount to last a long time.
I write honest reviews to help others make informed purchases because I read reviews myself and appreciate how helpful they can be. I hope that my review helped you!
Many "rosemary" oils that I have used smell more like mint and I thought that was how it was supposed to smell. Recently, I received a bag of Rosemary leaves and there is a definitely difference between mint and Rosemary. Rosemary has a softer/sweeter smell. This oil smells the same, which made me toss the previous oils.
The oil comes packaged in a nice box and includes a dropper if you need to count the drops for a specific application. I have heard that leaving the dropper in the bottle will cause the rubber to deteriorate so I just don't use it. I pour a little of the oil in my room diffuser and turn it on. What a wonderful smell in my house :)
