The most fascinating aspect of Rosemary essential oil – Rosmarinus officinalis verbenone, is its effect on the brain with regard to memory and concentration. Various studies have shown this to be true. When you’re feeling down, inhaling the fragrance of Rosemary oil will clear your mind and allow peace to flow. Scans have shown that inhaling rosemary increases brain wave and autonomic nervous system activity!
Therefore, the essential oil of rosemary has significantly increased the image memory compared to the control. Inhalation of the rosemary essential oil increased the memorization of numbers as well.
It is an amazing oil and is not only used to promote mental clarity, it is also used to:
