Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a well-known culinary herb. It has been extensively used for hundreds of years as a safe herbal remedy. Its scent is fresh and aromatic.
As an essential oil, rosemary is invaluable. It has a wide range of application and is particularly effective for digestive disorders; respiratory complaints and infections; sore muscles and poor circulation; skin care; and nervous afflictions.
Rosemary works well to relieve a fatigued mind. Place a few drops on a tissue or in a pot-pourri burner to counter mental stress and to energize the mind. Rosemary in the bath can recharge after a tiring and hot summer day. Rosemary can help in cases of acne and oily skin. It is particularly effective for dandruff and scalp irritations; a regular rosemary shampoo can help to eliminate these problems. Use a plain, non-irritating shampoo base and add essential oil of rosemary to a two-per-cent dilution. Rosemary should be diluted with almond oil before it’s applied topically.
Rosemary is a cerebral stimulant and a strong nerve stimulant in general. It is known to help bring on menstruation and raise blood pressure; therefore standard precautions are to avoid it during pregnancy or if you have high blood pressure. Note that essential oil of rosemary can antidote homeopathic remedies.
