Rosemary oil is one of the ONLY 5 oils Gary chose when creating Thieves. I think of it as the “forgotten oil”.
Some benefits of Rosemary essential oil:
- May strengthen memory, there are compounds in rosemary oil that may be responsible for changes in memory performance. One of them is called 1,8-cineole – as well as smelling wonderful, it may act in the same way as the drugs licensed to treat dementia, causing an increase in a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine.
- May prevent androgenetic alopecia by preventing a by-product of testosterone from attacking your hair follicles, which is the cause of this condition.
- Antioxidant – antioxidant properties of rosemary are attributed to its richness in isoprenoid quinones, which act as chain terminators of free radicals, and as chelators of reactive oxygen species.
- Antimicrobial – inhibitory effect of rosemary is the result of the action of rosmarinic acid, rosmaridiphenol, carnosol, epirosmanol, carnosic acid, rosmanol and isorosmanol which are found in Rosemary plants.
