Native to the Mediterranean region, this woody perennial has been used as food and medicine for centuries. Much like oregano, peppermint, and cinnamon, rosemary is frequently found in essential oil form. Essential oils are highly concentrated and distilled extracts of volatile plant compounds. These are used for cooking, cleaning, beauty, health, and other purposes.
Rosemary essential oil’s health uses range from antioxidant benefits and anti-inflammation to memory enhancement and more. Some say it could even prevent hair loss, pointing to Mediterranean cultures’ use of rosemary in hair rinses to promote hair growth for hundreds of years as supporting evidence.
Rosemary oil encourages hair growth may come from the rosemary’s basic health benefits as it:
· has anti-inflammatory properties
· promotes nerve growth
· improves circulation Like peppermint essential oil (also used to promote hair growth), rosemary essential oil strengthens circulation as it is used in the Hair Growth Conditioner with Peppermint Oil as well as the Rosemary and Peppermint Herbal Deep Conditioner.
As a result, it could prevent hair follicles from being deprived of blood supply, dying off, and leading to hair loss. Beyond stimulating hair growth, rosemary essential oil is used to prevent premature graying and dandruff. It may also help dry or itchy scalp.
