Considered sacred by ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and Hebrews Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is much more than an aromatic herb that tastes good on potatoes and roasted lamb. It’s also one of the most powerful herbs and essential oils on the planet. Rosemary has a woody, evergreen-like scent and is part of the mint family. In recent research, it’s been shown to boost the nerve growth factor and support the healing of neurological tissue and brain function.
Native to the Mediterranean, the wooded evergreen has been used in folk medicine for thousands of years to:
- Improve memory
- Soothe digestive issues
- Relieve muscle aches and pains
More recently, it has become a popular ingredient in many skin and hair care products due to its antiseptic properties and researchers are starting to dig deeper into its medicinal characteristics.
1. ROSEMARY OIL BENEFITS HAIR GROWTHWhen applied over the scalp Rosemary essential oil helps stimulate hair growth. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows greying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp. After testing a hair lotion “Francesc Casadó Galcerá,” it was found that a mixture of hops, rosemary, and swertia lead to some pretty remarkable results; i.e., a 22.4% increase in new hair growth. It is considered as a rapid increase in hair growth which promotes healing and helps in the microcirculation of the scalp.
2. ROSEMARY OIL IMPROVES MEMORY
The mental strengthening ability of Rosemary Oil is famous for thousands of years. The International Journal of Neuroscience published a study highlighting this phenomenon. Upon evaluating how the cognitive performance of 144 participants was affected by rosemary oil aromatherapy, lavender oil aromatherapy, and controls the University of Northumbria, Newcastle researchers discovered that,
Probably due to its significant calming effect, “Lavender produced a significant decrement in performance of working memory, and impaired reaction times for both memory and attention based tasks.” Whereas, Rosemary Oil produced a significant enhancement of performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors.
Rosemary Oil helped people in becoming more alert. Studies have also shown that rosemary essential oil can help in treating and prevent people from Alzheimer’s disease. Published in Psychogeriatrics, the effects of aromatherapy were tested on 28 older adults with dementia (17 of whom had Alzheimer’s). After inhaling the vapour of rosemary oil and lemon in the morning, and lavender and orange in the evening, all the patients showed significant improvement in personal orientation and no one experienced any side effects.
3. ROSEMARY OIL HELPS IN LIVER DETOXIFICATION AND GALLBLADDER FUNCTIONING
Rosemary Oil is also a fantastic detoxifier. Studies have been done in India that Rosemary oil enhances your body’s bile flow (which is essential for fat metabolism and detoxification) and reduces plasma liver enzymes (which has been linked to type II diabetes). Primarily, by helping enhance the performance of the bile-producing gall bladder proper peristaltic activity is promoted, which boosting nutrient absorption and helps reverse/prevent toxic overload.
4. ROSEMARY OIL LOWERS CORTISOL
A study was conducted in Meikai University, School of Dentistry in Japan that interestingly evaluated how 5 minutes of lavender and rosemary aromatherapy affected the salivary cortisol levels (the “stress” hormone) of 22 healthy volunteers. Upon observing that both essential oils enhance free radical scavenging activity, they also discovered that both significantly reduced cortisol levels, which protects the body from chronic disease due to oxidative stress.
Note: Essential oils can be allergic to some people. If signs of allergies occur then discontinue use immediately and if the problem persists then consult a doctor. The Best practice is to test 1 drop on your foot and let it be for 15-20 minutes, any signs of skin irritation means you are allergic. Keep these essential oils out of children's reach and keep it out of your eyes and ears. If there is such contact with the oil then rinse well with water. Do not use in times of pregnancy.pplying to the skin.)
