rosemary essential oil
Rosemary oil has been widely used for centuries for everything from perfume to abating epidemics in hospitals due to its antiseptic properties. Rosemary activates the nervous system and energizes the senses. It is very effective in relieving mental strain and making the user more alert and better able to perform tasks. Many use it as an antidepressant. It also relieves headaches and may help with migraines. Also, it is known to revitalize the liver and for its camphor-like aroma. Rosemary is able to tighten sagging skin and can help to prevent dandruff. Its stimulating effects are so strong that it may not be safe for people with epilepsy or high blood pressure.
Uses: Dilute rosemary oil with a carrier oil in an oil burner or as a bath oil. You can also add it to skin cream.
Cautionary Note: Do not use rosemary oil during pregnancy or if you have epilepsy or high blood pressure.
