We usually think of Rosemary in connection with cooking and it is an amazing herb in many ways. Few realize how effective this herb is in topical cures. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins calcium, and iron it rejuvenates and stimulates deep into the skin when applied in a soothing cream, oil, or balm. Let’s explore the benefits of Rosemary to our skin.
The Infection Prevention of Rosemary
Organic Rosemary is a powerful anti-inflammatory and its deep acting penetrative ability helps to reduce swelling. Its properties make it remarkable for treating skin burns and rashes.
Chronic skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis are soothed bt Rosemary’s pungent properties
Rosemary and Acne and Oily Skin Treatment
Potent as a disinfectant and anti-biotic, Rosemary is ideal as a key ingredient in a balm for treating acne whether on the face, upper arms, or back.
Its astringent quality renders it perfect for lightening dark spots on the skin and generally improving the complexion.
Rosemary and Your Sagging Skin
With Rosemary being so pungent it is not surprising that its powerful antioxidants strengthen capillaries that retard aging of the skin.
Loose skin is made firmer and more elastic and the biological activity stimulates prompts cell renewal which reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
Rosemary and it's Analgesic Properties
Sports injuries are greatly relieved when creams, balm, or oils containing Rosemary are rubbed in. Stronger than many over-the-counter-pain relievers, this little gem of nature is vastly underappreciated.
Rosemary Fends off Insects
Insects and other blood-sucking critters like ticks do not like Rosemary. Since ticks and mosquitoes carry viruses and bacteria very harmful to humans it makes sense to discourage their presence on our skin.
One study showed Rosemary to be superior to 11 other essential oils as the longest repellent of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which spread the Zika virus. A dilution of 12.5% rosemary oil repelled 100% of the mosquitoes for 90 minutes.
Rosemary, Circulation & Joint Inflammation
Via thermal imaging, the efficacy of a Rosemary oil blend was measured on a patient with Raynaud’s disease, which impairs circulation. Rosemary helps to expand the blood vessels so the blood circulates more easily.
Tissue inflammation that leads to pain, swelling, and stiffness are eased with Rosemary. People with rheumatoid arthritis will benefit from 15-minute knee massages using a Rosemary oil blend three times weekly.
In summary; like other essential oils, Rosemary is easily absorbed deep enough into the skin to reach muscles, ligament tendons, joints, and blood vessels
