Stimulating, punchy and invigorating, rosemary wakes us, reminds us, and calms our nerves.
Rosemary is a bossy herb at the best of times, forcing you awake, making sure your memory is up to par and generally stepping you up a gear.
She is bracing, making our heart beat and speed of respiration both switch up a notch. If there were an oil that represented the five minutes before an exam then rosemary is it, hyper alert and ready to pounce.
Add that personality to the feisty chemistry of 1-8 cineole and you have a serious weapon to reckon with. Antibacterial and simulating, rosemary chases away the poorly blues and puts you right back on your A game.
Astringent, she cleans grime off the skin, and is wonderful added to shampoos to bring a glossy lustre to the hair.
