Rosemary Oil - everything you want to know and more...

Awaiting my order of Rosemary oil from Mountain Rose Herbs.  I've been using a thick, creamy oil blend from Organic Body Care Recipes that is simply Sesame base oil (cosmetic grade, not culinary) and Shea Butter.  With the addition of Rosemary oil, it will help with aching muscles and circulation too! Thinking about a Lavender/Rosemary blend for balance.
Here's some interesting tidbits of info about Rosemary:

  • "Hungary Water" was made by the Queen of Hungary by adding rosemary sprigs to wine.  It was said to "renovate vitality of paralyzed limbs".  
  • Rosemary also has a reputation for improving memory. 
  • The results of a study suggest that an ingredient found in rosemary  "may shield the brain from free radicals, lowering the risk of strokes and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's".  
  • Another study showed it may have anticarcinogenic properties.
I'm gonna get some, and you can too.  Click on the Mountain Rose Herb banner for more information.
