Prima Fleur Premier Product: NEW Cafe du Sud Body Scrub

Beans of Coffea arabica on the bush.
Our NEW CafĂ© du Sud Body Scrub [Prima Fleur No. 1145] is the perfect antidote to the chapped, flaky winter skin we’re experiencing in this season of cold, dry air. With a base of ground coffee and exotic oils, all sourced from Africa and Brazil, its roots are in the warmth of the Southern Hemisphere. Bring your body the vibrancy of these far-flung places with a gentle natural polishing from ground Zulu coffee and fine sugar from Hawaii. Sparked by the Italian tradition of espresso accompanied with a lemon twist and a sugar cube, this product’s tasty aroma is that of spiced coffee with a bright burst of blood orange, sweet orange, and lemon peel oils. Cardamom and spearmint are also important in the blend.

Prima Fleur Essential Oils: Corsican ROSEMARY


The French island of Corsica is the primary growing region for our rare Rosmarinus officinalis, var. verbenone [Prima Fleur No. 114]. Clear in color with a strong buttery aroma, softer and richer than other Rosemary oils, it is more chemically balanced, with lower percentages of camphor and cineole. It specifically contains verbenone and bornyl acetate. This oil proves most useful in skin care, as it is generally safe for all skin types and thought to clean out the skin and aid it to rebuild. The least irritating of the Rosemary varieties, it is good for sluggish, sallow, congested skin. For emotional support, it is extraordinarily fortifying, cleansing the mind and uplifting the spirit.

We also offer other varieties of Rosemary essential oil: verbenone [Prima Fleur Nos. 345, 508], cineole [No. 203]. Our California-grown and distilled certified organic Rosemary Hydrosol [Nos. 719 and 729] are perfect for mid-life phyto-tonics as well as sluggish, congested skin and teen-problematic skin conditions.  

For information on our essential oils and pricing, please visit our website. For questions and to explore custom development with exquisite botanicals from our extensive library of raw materials, please contact sales@primafleur.com ~ or call (415) 455-0957.


Prima Fleur Essential Oils: More About ROSEMARY

Most sources interpret the Latin name for rosemary as ros marinus, dew of the sea. Rosemary is indigenous to countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. In its native region, it often grows at low altitude and in proximity to the sea. However, it does not populate the coast, where the spray of sea water might inspire the name. This antiseptic oil is used in the treatment of muscular sprains, arthritis, colic depression, memory loss, migraine, and coughs. It is popular in aromatherapy, where it revives, warms, stimulates, and restores.

Rosemary is both a physical and mental stimulant, and is excellent for refreshing tired muscles, feet, and mind, encouraging concentration. It combats mental fatigue and clears stuffy atmospheres. Its actions are analgesic, anti-depressive, anti-inflammatory, astringent, decongestant, digestive, fungicidal, insecticide, invigorating, relaxant, restorative to the nervous system, and sedative.

A middle note, Rosemary blends well with all citrus oils, Ravintsara, Basil, Cedarwood, Cinnamon, Elemi, Cistus, Lavandin, Lavender, Peppermint, Petitgrain, and Thyme. Rosemary essential oil is one of the ingredients used in the preparation of eau de cologne.

We offer two varieties of Rosemary essential oils: verbenone [Prima Fleur Nos. 114, 345, 508], cineole [No. 203], as well as our California-grown and distilled certified organic Rosemary Hydrosol [Nos. 719 and 729], which are perfect for mid-life phyto-tonics as well as sluggish, congested skin and teen-problematic skin conditions.
