Rosemary is one of our most prized herbs. It was held in reverence by the ancient Romans, Egyptians, and Greeks. The use of rosemary oil also goes back centuries. Today, many medicinal preparations contain rosemary essential oil. Its many well-researched health benefits are listed below:


For Hair Care

Regular use of rosemary oil can help stimulate follicles, making hair grow longer and stronger. It may also help slow down premature graying and hair loss. According to a report in the Skin Med Journal, the oil helps in increasing hair count. The study found that volunteers, suffering from severe hair fall, saw a significant improvement after applying the oil for just six months. Regular massaging of the scalp with rosemary oil nourishes the scalp and removes dandruff. 


Skin Care

While it is not used in skincare as extensively as it is used in hair care, rosemary oil has potent antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that can help you deal with eczema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne. Topical application or massage with the oil helps in toning the skin and removing dryness. A study found that the essential oil, when regularly added to a moisturizer or face creams, showed a significant improvement in skin hydration and elasticity.
