Rosemary Essential Oils

This time of year always excites me. Spring is a time for new beginnings and beautiful sights and smells in the garden. During a walk down my garden path the other day, I noticed a meager rosemary plant peering out at me from under the winter debris. As I took time to expose the rosemary, I thought about what an extraordinary perennial herb this is.

Rosemary is similar to lavender in appearance and has leathery, thick, flat leaves that are dark green in colour and touched with silver. This evergreen shrub boasts tiny pale blue blossoms through spring. Rosemary naturally grows near the Mediterranean Sea and its Latin name translates to ‘dew of the sea’.

Rosemary oil is one of the most popular essential oils and is known for its culinary and herbal benefits. The oil is extracted from the fresh flowering tops and is clear in color. It has a woodsy, citrus-like fragrance. The oils can be added to carrier oils, shampoos or lotions. The oils can also be used in candles, fresheners, cosmetics and much more.

There are many benefits of using rosemary essential oil which include, but are not limited to the following:

1.Pain Relief – Rosemary essential oil is an analgesic substance with anti-inflammatory qualities. It is widely used in treating headaches, migraines, muscle pains, arthritis, sprains and joint aches.

2. Stress Relief – Multiple studies have shown that rosemary essential oils decrease the level of cortisol, which is a hormone released in our body’s when under stress. The aroma of rosemary can improve your mood, clear your mind, and relieve stress.

3. Skin Health – The anti-aging properties of rosemary essential oil, when applied topically, have been shown to improve the youthful quality of the skin, heal blemishes and promote a hydrated appearance of our body’s largest organ.

4. Hair Health – When added to shampoos and lotions, rosemary essential oil helps stimulate follicles which aid long, shiny and strong hair growth. When massaged into your scalp it is also known to remove dandruff.

When I finished freeing my rosemary plant from its winter burden, I wondered how many people use rosemary for merely culinary purposes. This evergreen herb has so much more to offer us besides flavour in our meals and beauty in the garden. This ‘dew of the sea’ deserves a priority place in our organic gardens not only to attract pollinators but also for its many healing properties.
