Rosmarinus officinalis

Rosemary has long been used in folk medicine for healing bruises and sprains, for healing sores and sore throats. It is also an old favourite in hair products such as shampoos and rinses, said to give shine and enhance brown hair tones as well as stimulating growth.

In skin care preparations rosemary is added to products to improve circulation and elasticity. Oily skin with blackheads and spots also benefits from rosemary, as it is healing and antibacterial.

To use rosemary in skin and hair care products, use both an infusion and the essential oil for best results. To make the infusion, use 25g dried rosemary per 1 litre of water.

NB. Pregnant women and people with epilepsy and/or high blood pressure should avoid rosemary essential oil.
