Rosemary Oil- Ingredient of the Month
What is it?
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) gets its name from the Latin words meaning “dew” and “of the Sea”. It’s a highly fragrant evergreen herb which is native to the warm, sunny Mediterranean region. It has a variety of uses in the kitchen and in natural medicine, and both the flowers and the leaves contain an essential oil - Rosemary Oil, which has excellent topical uses for the skin and aroma therapeutic benefits.
How can Rosemary Oil help my skin?
Rosemary has a plethora of benefits for the skin and has been used since ancient times. High in antioxidants, it helps prevent skin damage and maximises skin tone by neutralising free radicals. The damaged caused by free-radicals is seen in the skin structure, leading to wrinkles, sagging and uneven skin tone. Rosemary Oil strengthens the capillaries and helps to slow the effects of ageing, by tightening sagging and loose skin, helping it to look firmer and more elastic. This powerful little herb is an excellent source of iron, calcium and vitamin B6, which is needed to support healthy collagen levels.
Rosemary Oil contains powerful disinfectant and antibiotic properties, making it ideal at fighting bacteria, fungi and viruses on the skin. The herb can help to treat acne and oily skin conditions, while lightening dark spots and blemishes, resulting in an improved complexion. It is also used on minor wounds and burns, or on skin affected by dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis, as the oil is an anti inflammatory which reduces redness and swelling, while stimulating cell renewal and promoting healthy healing. When used as a massage oil or diluted in the bath, it can relieve aches, pains, spasms, stiff neck, rheumatism and arthritis. It’s also highly effective at stimulating blood circulation, making wounds heal faster and relieving pain quicker.
