An aromatic evergreen plant of Mediterranean origin, rosemary is widely used as a herb, as well as for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Its small blue flowers represent the basis of a very popular aromatherapy essential oil. Obtained through steam distillation, rosemary oil is a yellowish liquid rich in health benefits.


Benefits of rosemary oil for general health

Rosemary oil is believed to have a stimulating effect upon the human mind, enhancing our ability to focus and improving productivity. Because of its tonic properties, rosemary oil has also been used with success in aromatherapy for cases of depression, severe anxiety and extreme fatigue.

Research has shown that this aromatic herb can be beneficial within Alzheimerís disease treatments because it gives a temporary boost to the patientís cognitive function, slowing down the evolution of this incurable disease.

Rosemary oil can also stimulate antioxidant activity, boosting their power to fight off infections and enhancing one's immune system. At the same time, it can lower cortisol levels, thus reducing free radical activity and helping combat the diseases they cause such as cancer and heart conditions.

Benefits of rosemary oil for skin

Rosemary oil has astringent properties, being a popular ingredient for a large array of skin care products, especially oily-skin cleansers, face masks and liquid soaps. However, this is not the only type of skin rosemary oil is used for. This herbal extract represents the basis for many complex or dry skin beauty products because of its rich nutrient content (iron, calcium and vitamins). Other skin conditions for which rosemary oil has proved beneficial are skin rejuvenation, treatment of scars, acne and aging signs.

Benefits of rosemary oil for hair

Rosemary oil is also known for its hair growth and thickness boosting effect. The explanation lies in its stimulating activity upon hair follicles, dilating blood vessels and speeding up the cell division process. Rosemary oil can be a natural alternative to hair dyeing solutions if you want to get a darker hair color.
