Rosemary Oil is also great for the skin and hair… let’s talk about it.

Hair Benefits

Rosemary Oil is the gold standard for hair growth and healthy hair. Here’s how…

It can promote hair growth

Rosemary oil can help strengthen circulation and improve blood supply to the hair follicles. Lack of sufficient blood supply is what leads to hair loss over time.

There’s scientific evidence to suggest that rosemary oil can be as effective as the hair growth drug minoxidil – a research study from back in 2015 showed it increased the hair count of alopecia sufferers after six months of use.

Rosemary oil is great for overall hair health too. It’s anti-inflammatory to help reduce scalp irritation, dandruff and itching.

The antibacterial properties can help protect the skin against acne, and the antiseptic properties can help skin conditions like eczema. Its antibacterial properties can also help fight body odour, making it a great natural deodorant.

The anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe and reduce the appearance of redness and reduce skin irritation.
