Rosemary - The Smell of Success

Can Rosemary Essential oil make you smarter?
Mark Moss and Lorraine Oliver from Northumbria University had the same question. They then devised an experiment that would test if the aroma of 1,8-cineole (one of the main chemical components of rosemary) would improve brain performance and mood.
For their experiment they had 20 volunteers perform math and visual tests. Some were exposed to the rosemary aroma for 4, 6, 8, or 10 minutes while some were not exposed at all. After testing and analyzing results, they found that those in the rosemary-aroma room scored better on the test and were in a better mood than those who weren’t. They also found that participants with the higher blood levels on 1,8-cineole (those who smelt longer) had greater speed and accuracy on their test.
So, yes, just smelling rosemary essential oil could make you smarter. So grab your Rosemary and go diffuse!

About Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary has traditionally been used for stimulating the mind, enhancing mental clarity, treating skin disorders, relieving stiffness of joints, and stimulating healthy hair growth.  Many find its warming qualities beneficial for occasional discomfort.  


Personal Uses and Experiences. We diffuse Rosemary with peppermint and wild orange after school. I also make a gel capsule for my mother with Frankincense, peppermint and rosemary and fractionated coconut oil it replaces her memory medication which has horrible side effects. We just added the new Cellular Complex Blend supplement so we will see how that goes. So far so good with the capsule I make her.
My girlfriends mother in-law had hair grow back using rosemary, lavender and pure Aloe Vera gel and a warm compress every day, three months later her hair was growing back. I had a friend who was studying for college exams and she placed it on a cotton ball and would smell it while studying and take the cotton ball with her to class. I use rosemary for cooking and in my home made lotions and sugar and salt scrubs.  I have also diffused at night when kids are sleeping There are so many uses for each oil, remember to listen to your body and you will know which oils to use.

Thank you to those of you who share your stories. It truly keeps me going and it is so heart warming to hear how the oils make a difference in peoples lives.
