You will find us in the beautiful town of Langebaan on the West Coast of South-Africa. On our 2Ha smallholding called Oppikoppie, we grow Rosemary for the distillation of Rosemary Essential oil. We also make natural rosemary soap from pure botanical ingredients, rosemary & lavender bath salt, rosemary & salt grinder, and rosemary & rooibos tea.
Growing up in a family of beekeepers, the love for nature soon developed. There is just something peaceful and fascinating in the veld, surrounded by plants. When we bought our smallholding, we made the decision to “make it work for us”. As a lover of essential oils, we decided to venture into Rosemary Essential Oil. We harvest and distill essential oil twice a year.
Loving nature, we keep it all as natural as possible and only use worm tea from our worm farm and organic fertilizer when needed.
Earth Oil produces a wide variety of 100% natural, earth-friendly rosemary products and choice grade honey.
What We Do
Our rosemary is grown on the smallholding Oppikoppie just outside Langebaan. Although not certified, we cultivate our rosemary orchards in a 100% organic, natural and earth-friendly fashion.
The rosemary is hand-picked and collected by our dedicated farmhands. To obtain essential oil of the highest quality, we harvest rosemary when they are in full bloom.
Wood Fire Distillation
Our rosemary gets distilled the old fashioned wood-fired way, in order to extract the best quality rosemary essential oil for our products.
Rosemary Essential Oil Products
Our rosemary essential oil is used in a variety of Earth Oil products and handmade soap. Read more under our “Rosemary” page to find out the best ways to use rosemary essential oil.
In cooking, rosemary is used as a seasoning in a variety of dishes, such as soups, casseroles, salads, and stews. Try our Rosemary & Sea Salt in a grinder, or the delicious Crushed Garlic & Rosemary from our product range.
Rooibos and Rosemary Tea
Rosemary tea offers some impressive potential health benefits. Drinking the tea may benefit your mood and brain and eye health. Rooibos is capable of relieving stress, diminishing tension and lowering high blood pressure.
Rosemary has a wide array of uses and health benefits and is also a great culinary enhancement. Rosemary oil, especially, has a pronounced action on the brain and the central nervous system and is wonderful for clearing the mind and mental awareness, while having excellent brain stimulant properties, as well as improving memory.
