Rosemary Organic essential oil is a good all rounder.
There are many ways to utilise its numerous properties.
A few drops in the bath are helpful after an illness as a pick-me-up and a tonic. It can aid memory, relieve mental fatigue and lethargy and help to relieve headaches and migraines. It's a very useful oil to smell during exams and is also great to alleviate that Monday morning feeling.
Because Rosemary has a warm, penetrating and stimulating odour it makes for a great muscle ease. Superb after sports activities - even more so when combined with Lavender and Marjoram. Dilute well in a carrier oil before skin application.
Rosemary has also traditionally been used in skin and hair care. It's a good toner and can be rejuvenating for the scalp. You can add it to your shampoo - it makes an excellent rinse for dark hair and hair in poor condition. It restores colour to dark hair and helps combat dandruff when the scalp is dry.
Rosemary is also a strong antiseptic and can be used as an insect repellent - especially for lice.
