Rosemary Essential Oil 15ml
Rosemary essential oil is extracted from the leaves and flowering tops of the rosemary plant. With a woody, evergreen-like scent, rosemary oil is typically described as invigorating and purifying.
Most of rosemary’s beneficial health effects haven been attributed to the high antioxidant activity of its main chemical constituents, including carnosol, carnosic acid, ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid and caffeic acid.
Product benefits & How to use:
- Discourages Hair Loss and Boosts Hair Growth
- Improves Memory
- Liver Boosting
Rosemary is also a fantastic liver cleanser and booster. It’s an herb known for its choleretic and
hepatoprotective effects, “choleretic” means that rosemary is a substance that increases the amount of bile secreted by the liver. Hepatoprotective means the ability of something to prevent damage to the liver.
- Lowers Cortisol
A study was conducted out of Meikai University, School of Dentistry in Japan that evaluated how five minutes of lavender and rosemary aromatherapy affected the salivary cortisol levels (the “stress” hormone) of 22 healthy volunteers. Upon observing that both essential oils enhance free-radical scavenging activity, they also discovered that both greatly reduced cortisol levels, which protects the body from chronic disease due to oxidative stress.
- Cancer Fighting
In addition to being a rich antioxidant, rosemary is also known for its anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties. One of rosemary’s main active components is carnosol.
Carnosol acts like a military sniper who only takes out his enemy target and does not damage neighbouring cells, unlike the chemotherapy nuclear-bomb approach that kills everything along its path. An article published in the journal Nutrients in 2016 notes that rosemary extract has been shown to exhibit anti-cancer properties in vitro for the following cancers:
- Colon cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
