Rosemary is stimulating, warming and refreshing and can be used to help boost memory retention and staying alert. It has many skin care applications, including adding to a shampoo to aid in maintaining a healthy scalp and lustrous hair. When diffused, Rosemary can also be helpful as a respiratory support oil.
Like most spice and herb oils, Rosemary is helpful in aiding occasional digestive upset. Rosemary is also beneficial in massage blends, increasing circulation and warmth to the skin and underlying muscles.
To help with occasional digestive upset, add Rosemary to your favorite carrier and rub in a clockwise fashion over the abdomen. Before a big test in school (for teens and adult students) make an inhaler with equal part rosemary and lemon. Sniff the inhaler frequently while studying; then just before the test, sniff again several times. When combined with Black Pepper, Rosemary can also increase skin circulation which can be useful in warming massage blends.
