Rosemary Essential Oil Chemotypes
Whilst all Rosemary Essential Oils provide similar benefits, this immensely beneficial aromatherapy oil has at least five different chemotypes, or chemically distinct varieties. This means the chemical compounds found in each of the different types of Rosemary Essential Oil differ from each other.
Chemotypes are sometimes referred to as chemovars.
The two most popular Rosemary Essential Oil chemotypes are:
- Rosemary Essential Oil ct Cineole
- Rosemary Essential Oil ct Camphor
Rosemary Essential Oil ct Cineole, (INCI Salvia Rosmarinus ct cineole), contains the highest amount of the oxide 1,8 cineole, of all the different Rosemary Essential Oils.
Rosemary Essential Oil ct Cineole is a warming Rosemary Oil, as opposed to Rosemary Essential Oil ct Camphor, which is more cooling. It is the most cephalic of the Rosemary Oils, making it the best choice for brain function, and emotional issues of a known origin.
Rosemary Essential Oil ct Camphor, (INCI: Salvia rosmarinus ct camphor), contains the highest amount of the ketone camphor of all of the Rosemary Essential Oils. This makes it the most effective of the Rosemary Essential Oils for respiratory infections and disorders. It is also helpful for muscle spasms and the relief of tension and strains of physical exertion. Rosemary Essential Oil ct Camphor is more cooling than Rosemary Essential Oil ct Cineole.
The lesser known and used varieties include:
- Rosemary Essential Oil ct Verbenone
- Rosemary Essential Oil ct Borneol
- Rosemary Essential Oil ct Bornyl acetate
The variance in chemotypes between these Rosemary Essential Oils is due to the different growing conditions within which the Rosemary plants are grown.
Rosemary plants are grown commercially in many different regions of the world. These regions differ distinctly from each other in terms of climate and terrain. The levels of sun and rain, as well as soil quality, all dramatically influence the quality of the plants and the chemical composition of the essential oils found within the plants.
