Rosemary meaning "Rose of the Sea” is one of the most stimulating aromatherapy oils. It has an energising effect and can be a useful tonic during periods of stress, or to aid memory and concentration whilst studying (it is often called the 'herb of remembrance'). It has a similar 'clearing' action and scent to Eucalyptus and is one of the most popular aromatherapy oils for respiratory problems in winter. Rosemary essential oil is also often included in aromatherapy massage blends for the joints and muscles.
