Rosemary Essential Oils
Rosemary Essential Oil (rosmarinus officinalis) is well known for its strong, herbal aroma. Commonly used as a culinary herb, Rosemary Essential Oil has many physical and mental benefits as well. It is particularly effective for balancing emotions and relieving stress. When inhaled, Rosemary Essential Oil decreases Cortisol levels (a hormone produced in stressful situations). This can help combat the effects of chronic stress and improve overall well-being. Rosemary Essential Oil is also used to treat symptoms of indigestion, including cramping, constipation, bloating, and flatulence.
It aids digestion by stimulating bile production in the liver and helping to flush out harmful toxins. It is commonly used as a massage oil to treat joint and muscle pains, due to its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. It is effective in relieving pain due to acute injuries as well as chronic conditions such as arthritis.
