WHERE DOES ROSEMARY COME FROM?
ROSEMARY IN AROMATHERAPY
ROSEMARY IN SKINCARE
Rosemary is antimicrobial, and can help alleviate aches and pains or sore muscles when used topically in a balm or an oil. It is used widely in hair preparations, as it has been shown to help with dandruff and stimulate healthy hair growth. Massaged into nail beds, rosemary can help strengthen and support nail growth.
ARE THERE TYPES OF ROSEMARY?
Not all rosemary is the same. It comes in different “chemotypes” – camphor-borneol, cineole, and verbenone, which has a gentle scent that closely resembles the fresh herb itself and is the best for skincare. Rosemary is not recommended for people with high blood pressure, seizure disorders, or during pregnancy.
