NATURALISTIC Essential Body Oil -ROSEMARY (2 oz roll on)
In ancient times, rosemary was thought to strengthen memory (5).
Research indicates that inhaling rosemary oil helps prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a brain chemical important for thinking, concentration and memory (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).
When 20 young adults were asked math questions in a small room diffused with rosemary oil, their speed and accuracy increased in direct proportion to the duration the oil was diffused.
Additionally, their blood levels of certain rosemary compounds likewise increased — illustrating that rosemary can enter your body through breathing alone (6Trusted Source).
Similarly, nursing students who breathed rosemary oil while taking a test reported increased concentration and information recall compared to breathing lavender oil or no essential oil at all (8Trusted Source).
Other research suggests that breathing rosemary and other essential oils may improve brain function in older adults with dementia, including those with Alzheimer’s disease (9Trusted Source).
Keep in mind that more research is needed.
