Rosemary Oil


The essential oil of Rosemary can be used externally for treating rheumatic diseases and circulatory problems. Rosemary oils are used in massage oil formulations to relieve the pain of arthritis and sore aching muscles. Rosemary used in massage oil also helps alleviate water retention and tonify the circulatory system to increase circulation. Rosemary oil softens and tones the skin and also stimulates hair follicles and circulation in the scalp to help prevent premature baldness by encouraging healthy hair growth while it slows hair loss. Rosemary leaves taken internally or in tea help prevent uterine spasms and menstrual cramps. Rosemary leaf is also effective for treating dyspepsia. Full of antioxidant compounds, Rosemary extract (rosmarinic acid) is used to stabilize and extend the shelf life of all-natural cosmetics, creams, lotions, and other herbal compounds. Besides that, it smells good!
