Rosemary Essential Oil - Benefits & Uses

Essential oils are great for holistic health and keeping your mind, body, and spirit in harmony. Rosemary Essential Oil is used for many reasons, and people believe it helps strengthen memory, helps regrow hair, and even reduces pain and inflammation!

What is Rosemary Essential Oil?

Known for its distinctive fragrance that is characterized by an energizing, evergreen, citrus-like, herbaceous scent, Rosemary Essential Oil is derived from the aromatic herb Rosmarinus Officinalis. This plant belongs to the Mint family, and includes Basil, Lavender, Myrtle, and Sage.

Strengthen Your Memory

Rosemary Essential Oil has been used in studies to promote memory retention! In Ancient Greece and Rome, they believed the oil strengthened your memory. When 20 young adults were asked math questions in a small room diffused with rosemary oil, their speed and accuracy increased in direct proportion to the duration the oil was diffused.

Using this oil in aromatherapy can help focus, concentration, and memory, so use this when studying for tests!

Stimulates Hair Growth

Additionally, Rosemary can help boost hair growth and thicken hair. Rosemary oil treats androgenetic alopecia by preventing a byproduct of testosterone from attacking your hair follicles, which is the cause of this condition. Over 44% of people when using the oil on their scalp daily, noticed an increase in hair growth!

Reduces Pain & Inflammation

Some people use this oil topically instead of pain medication. Rosemary Essential oil can be used to treat joint inflammation and relieve pain associated with muscle pain. This oil is primarily used to help reduce pain in muscles, joints, and tendons, not with open sores, scratches, etc.

Helps Boost Your Mood & Eases Stress

Rosemary Essential Oil is known to 'energize' the mind. Along with memory strength, it has also been used to lift your mood and reduce stress levels. Many people use this in their aromatherapy to help them focus and relax when they need to work.
