Rosemary extract is made from the leaves of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis / Salvia rosmarinus), a typical Mediterranean herb originating in the Mediterranean region, which is considered a very old spice and medicinal plant. Since 2020, rosemary has been one of the sage species (Salvia), a genus of plants within the mint family (Lamiaceae), which is why the older name Rosmarinus officinalis is replaced by Salvia rosmarinus was replaced. Rosemary is therefore, among other things, related to lavender, sage and thyme. When in bloom, the evergreen, needle-like rosemary bush produces blue, purple, pink or white flowers. Rosemary is mainly grown in France, Spain, North Africa and the USA.

When used internally, the extract primarily has digestive-stimulating effects. In aromatherapy it is used to calm and combat stress and nervous tension.
