The most fascinating aspect of Rosemary – 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:
- treat Alzheimer’s
- aid digestion
- relieve joint and muscle pain including arthritis
- support/promote hair growth
- treat dandruff
- prevent skin infections
- detoxify the body
- aid oral care
and my personal favourite uses are to boost the immune system and treat respiratory problems. Hence its presence in Defensor™.
Rosemary essential oil has anti-microbial and antiseptic qualities and can be effective when used to treat eczema, dermatitis, oily skin and acne. It has anti-aging properties and helps with hydration and elasticity of dry skin. It is more often used in hair products as it nourishes the scalp to eliminate dry flaky skin or dandruff, and prevent hair loss.
Rosemary essential oil strengthens the entire body and is believed to have a special healing effect on the liver, brain and heart.
These findings clarify that lavender and rosemary enhance FRSA and decrease the stress hormone, cortisol, which protects the body from oxidative stress.
Interesting fact I didn’t know: rosemary extracts are routinely employed as natural antioxidant to improve the shelf life of perishable foods. The European Union has approved rosemary extract (E392) as a safe and effective natural antioxidant for food preservation.
In this study it shows the Rosemary oil can be used to combat and manage the herpes simplex virus!
Rosemary can also be used to keep ants and spiders away. Add Rosemary with Lemon, Sweet Orange, Peppermint or Marigold oil to a Liter of water and spray it all over the house. Not only will your home smell beautiful, it will be less “creepy“! 🙂
I use Rosemary oil everywhere. I add a few drops to my shampoo, face creams and body creams for that wonderful anti-aging and moisturising effect.
Essential Oil Numerology
Rosemary is a transition oil. It takes you on the journey to freedom by showing you that doing everything out of your own power is fruitless. It shows you that once you start relying on a your higher power (the source of your being), miracles will happen that will take you to places you thought you could only dream of, because Rosemary contains the number of magic.
If you’re a control freak, Rosemary will help you to let go a little but at the same time, Rosemary will help you get organised, put systems in place and implement checks and balances to free you from the need to control the nitty gritties and help you focus more on the bigger picture.
Rosemary will help you understand that you have a unique and specific mission here in this life and will put you in touch with your intuition so that you can discover your inner being and inner potential that will bring you your best life ever. You don’t need to control everything. You can just let go and allow life to unfold before you and follow your bliss. If you can do this, you will see a new world open up to you. A world of magic and stupendous coincidences will draw you in to your new life, if you will ‘let it be’.
In other words, you, your ego, are not in control of your life. You are here to enjoy your life and watch as your higher power or source of your being brings your life to you and allows you to choose that which you prefer and that which you don’t. Choices choices! So the key is to always choose that which makes you feel good. If you do you will find that you will always choose the good. You will be trustworthy, honest, have integrity and always be reliable. You will attract many people and abundance into your life.
In contrast, if you continue to rely upon your ego, you will end up with a life filled with skepticism, neglect, judgement and misery.
Rosemary stirs up the elementals to re-arrange themselves into creating a more structured ‘image’ so to speak. It will perk your intuition and you will start to see that life is easy, exciting, simple and energising. Rather than a huge big slog of dog-eat-dog to get to the top.
Rosemary supports in every single way. Rosemary says: “It’s no use wasting any more time on trivial matters. Your life is magical.” Use Rosemary to bring super clarity and super vision as you remember who you really are.
