Oil Of Rosemary Rosemanol by North American Herb & Spice
North American Herb & Spice - Oil Of Rosemary Rosemanol - 1 oz.
North American Herb & Spice Oil Of Rosemary Rosemanol is nearly four times more powerful than BHT, the synthetic antioxidant used in preserving foods. This spice is rich in flavonoids and minerals, particularly calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and phosphorous which are easily assimilated by the body. Rosemary enhances the value of any herb or vitamin due to its nutritional value and tonic. Rosemary can be taken internally or rubbed topically for a cooling sensation.
Parts used and where grown
Rosemary is a small, fragrant evergreen shrub. The rosemary plant originated in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. However, it now grows in North America as well. The leaf is used in herbal medicine.
Historical or Traditional Use
Throughout history, rosemary was used to preserve meats. It has long played a role in European herbalism and popular folklore. Sprigs of rosemary were considered a love charm, a sign of remembrance, and a way to ward off the plague. Rosemary was used by herbalists as a tonic for the elderly and to help with indigestion. In ancient China, rosemary was used for headaches and topically for baldness.
A number of constituents have shown activity in the test tube. The volatile oil, including eucalyptol (cineole), is considered to have potent antibacterial effects and to relax smooth muscles in the lungs. Rosmarinic acid has antioxidant activity and another ingredient of rosemary, known as carnosol, inhibits cancer formation in animal studies. No human studies have confirmed rosemary’s use for these conditions.
How much is usually taken?
The German Commission E monograph suggests 3/4 to 1-1/4 tsp (4 to 6 grams) of rosemary leaf per day. A tea can be prepared by adding 2 teaspoons (10 grams) of herb to 1 cup (250 ml) boiling water and allowing it to steep in a covered container for 10 to 15 minutes. This tea can be taken several times per day. Rosemary tincture, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon (2 to 5 ml) three times per day, may also be used. The concentrated volatile oil should not be taken internally.
Are there any side effects or interactions?
There is no evidence to indicate that intermittent intake of moderate amounts of rosemary poses any threat during breast-feeding. However, internal intake of the herb and oil should be avoided during pregnancy because the oil may act as an abortifacient (an agent that may induce an abortion).
An extract of rosemary taken with a meal by healthy women inhibited the absorption of non-heme iron (e.g., the form of iron in plant foods) by 15%. Frequent use of rosemary could, in theory, promote the development of iron deficiency in susceptible individuals.

For this we align ourselves and support causes that set a high morale standard for the respect of nature and our health. We are opposed to the use of genetically modified organisms in our food. We believe in the power of raw foods, and the power that uncooked vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and enzymes posses.

Wild handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product line. The phenolic compounds found in these spices have been revered since antiquity for their powerful effects. These whole, raw spices are steam distilled using the same processes used for generations, capturing the concentrated essential oil at often astounding ratios. These concentrated spice oils are then emulsified in extra virgin olive oil at the perfect ratio for power and palatability. Through this proprietary process invented by our founder Ms. Gray, the spice extract market in the United States was revived after problems with adulteration hindered its growth in the early 1950s. The end result was the purest, most powerful spice extracts made from the purest ingredients free from pesticides, chemicals, and solvents.
Wild oregano is handpicked by villagers in the most remote mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. This ensures the impeccable purity and quality of the essential oils we provide. When the wild spice and herbs are steam distilled to extract the powerful essential oils, it is done with pure, underground spring waters. This is a technique used by the indigenous peoples of the region for centuries. After the steam distillation process is complete, the essential oils are then tested to ensure the phytochemical markers are within our expectations. When the essential oils are emulsified, it is in organic extra virgin olive oil, which by itself possesses powerful nutritive properties. We never adulterate our products with fillers, chemicals, or solvents. North American Herb and Spice’s early challenges have led to the development of not only the most unique variety of products in the world, but also a standard for quality second to none.
