R. officinalis is a dense and aromatic bush native to the Mediterranean basin. Its evergreen foliage is made up of small, needle-like leaves that are dark green on top and silvery below. The flowers are small and vary in color from purple to blue to nearly white. The name rosemary (romarin in French) is believed to come from the Latin ros marinus, meaning dew of the sea, a reference to the plant’s abundant presence on the Mediterranean coasts and islands, or from the Greek rhops myrinos, meaning aromatic bush.

In Morocco, rosemary grows wild on the slopes and highlands of the Atlas Mountains in the north of the country. In the blooming period between June and September, the branches are traditionally sickle-cut by farmers and shepherds. Rosemary can be harvested throughout the year, but the leaves have higher concentrations of active ingredients in summertime. Harvesting is done in hot, dry weather, after sunrise, once the dew has evaporated. The harvested rosemary is then dried in the sun for three days, bundled, and transported to the distillery on the backs of donkeys. Rosemary chemotypes vary with where the plant grows. The essential oil that we source in Morocco has a cineole chemotype.
