The quality of essential oils varies widely among manufacturers. Our essential oils are organic, 100% pure and therapeutic / medicinal grade.
Rosemary has been found to:
Decrease Cortisol Levels. A small 2007 study published inPsychiatry Researchby Japanese researchers found that five minutes of breathing in rosemary and lavender helped to decrease salivary cortisol levels in 22 healthy volunteers. Cortisol, released in response to stress by the adrenal glands, is sometimes referred to as the “stress hormone.” These same researchers also observed thatthe antioxidants in both rosemary and lavender essential oils enhanced the body’s free radical scavenging ability.
Inhibit Deadly Bacteria. Rosemary has long been used to improve skin by fighting bacteria and by cell renewal. A 2016 study done by Egyptian researchers appearing inJournal of Photochemistry and Photobiologyfound that rosemary essential oil was able to significantly inhibitPseudomonas aeruginosa. This is a gram-negative, multi-drug resistant pathogen associated with serious illnesses like ventilator-associated pneumonia and other sepsis conditions. Also, a 2015 study done by Brazilian researchers, released inFrontiers in Microbiology found thatboth rosemary and oregano essential oils had strong antimicrobial activity againstStaphylococcus aureus. This is another deadly bacterium, better known as golden staph, also considered to be multi-drug resistant.
Reduce Inflammation. A 2000 Brazilian study found that 1,8-Cineole has anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive (this means it reduces sensitivity to painful stimuli) properties. A 2008 animal study by Slovakian researchers reported inActa Veterinaria Brnoalso found that rosemary essential oil has anti-inflammatory benefits. Further, a 2011 Iranian animal study found thatrosemary essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties and could be considered a possible remedy for colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease.
Fight Cancer. Dozens of research studies have been done on rosemary for its various phytochemicals and applications for cancer. One American study in particular on carnosol, appearing in the June 2011 edition ofCancer Letters, stated that carnosol appeared to be well tolerated in animal studies and that it has selective toxicity toward cancer cells versus healthy cells.
Aid Hair Regrowth. Rosemary has been used traditionally for combatting hair loss. Researchers, comparing it with minoxidil (a commonly used drug for combating hair loss) foundrosemary essential oil to be just as good as minoxidil(after 6 months of use). The study was released in 2015 in the journalSkinMed.
Assist Brain Health. Rosemary has long been revered for its ability to help overcome mental fatigue, improving mental clarity and focus. Now, Japanese researchers have shown that rosemary can do more than that. The research, published in 2015 inNeuroscience Researchstated that carnosic acid (one of rosemary’s phytochemicals) has neuroprotective functions in brain cells. They said carnosic acid“served as an activator for neuroprotective and neurotrophic functions in brain cells.”They also statedit may be helpful in the prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease.
