Rosemary, the memory herb & more

Since ancient times this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve the memory. Perhaps because of this, rosemary became an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day.  Rosemary has particular significance for Australians, as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula.

 

In hair care rosemary can be used to rid the hair of nits.  It's a great herb to bring out the highlights of dark hair tones.  It is stimulating on the scalp which increases circulation around the scalp. This cleanses the head of dry skin and dandruff, and it also stimulates the hair to grow strong and health.

Mentally rosemary assists memory & focus.   Many essential oils & herbs can stimulate the memory simply by association with an event, however rosemary is the bee's knees when you really really need to lock that info in for future reference.  You can combine it in a tea (blend with brahmi and gotu kola), or blend is as an essential oil in an oil vapouriser (try blending with sweet basil and lemon).  Drink a tea or burn the aroma or rosemary whilst studying to enhance memory recall .. and be sure to take that aroma with you to the test day.

Rosemary is also reputed to be beneficial for:

  • Migraine relief
  • Freshen the breath
  • Boost the immune system
  • Aids the digestive system in regularity
  • Reduces stress & anxiety

However:  Best to avoid in high blood pressure, and avoid in pregnancy also for the high BP reason also.
