Rosemary Oil: Hair Growth Benefits

Welcome back to another blog post!

Today, we’re talking about Rosemary Oil.

 

What Is Rosemary Oil?

Though it's the perfect complement to roasted potatoes, it's clear that the evergreen-like plant, Rosmarinus officinalis, is more than just a fragrant sprig of green goodness. It's an essential oil with a rich and beloved history across the Mediterranean. In ancient Greece, rosemary wreaths were worn by scholars to aid thinking and improve their memory. The Egyptians honored loved ones by placing rosemary on the coffin lid as an act of remembrance. And in the 16th century, folks used rosemary balm and incense to help eliminate harmful bacteria.

The needle-like leaves have a distinctive scent that's not dissimilar to mint, though it has a woodier, more balsamic undertone. Just like mint and peppermint, rosemary leaf extract and, more specifically, rosemary oil is believed to have health benefits, improve circulation and help with hair growth.

Does Rosemary Oil Help With Hair Growth?

Rosemary essential oil is a highly concentrated and distilled variation of Rosmarinus officinalis leaf extract. Much like peppermint oil, rosemary essential oil boosts scalp health. It increases circulation and could possibly prevent thirsty hair follicles from being starved of their blood supply.

The oil is also believed to help prevent premature gray hair from poking through. Plus, rosemary's anti-inflammatory properties are thought to help with an itchy scalp and even dandruff.
