Product Abstract: An evergreen shrub with elegant branches, Rosemary’s stem is ash-colored and scaly with leathery, thick leaves that are lustrous and dark green with white underneath.

Its name originates from the Latin ros marinus (“Dew of the Sea”), as Rosemary naturally thrives near the Mediterranean Sea.
Hungarian rosemary is a frost-resistant species of the plant that can be widely cultivated in cooler climates. As a result of its unique properties and location of cultivation, Hungarian rosemary oil has slightly different concentrations of major components of Rosemary Oil such as camphor and alpha-pinene.
