Rosemary Essential Oil

Refreshing and energizing... also great for hair!

Rosemary essential oil balances emotions and mood swings. It lifts spirits and helps fight depression, stress and nervous exhaustion.

Plus, its stimulating, refreshing effect is great for waking up in the morning (add it to your shower gel) or for studying, driving or any time you need to focus.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot - it's also great for improving your memory.

Migraine sufferers may find that its penetrating scent and stimulating effect on the nervous system help ease headaches. Dilute a drop or two in a tablespoon of carrier oil and rub gently into your temples (avoid your eyes!) and the back of your neck. This works for some people, not so much for others. Worth a try!

Rosemary is well known for nourishing the scalp and helps keep hair healthy and shiny. It balances oil production and improves most scalp problems, including flaky scalp. It's also used as a tonic to promote hair growth.
