LEARN MORE ABOUT ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL
Rosemary is a perennial herb in the mint family called Lamiaceae, which includes many other herbs like basil, sage and marjoram. Most commonly, rosemary is known for its rich, fragrant, evergreen-like needles and their use in culinary arts to flavor and complement various cooked foods. Rosemary essential oil, steam distilled from the needles of the plant, has been traditionally used in aromatherapy to help ease soreness in the muscles and has been studied for its benefits in helping to improve memory and to boost the immune system. Read on for more information about the versatility of rosemary and how you can add this warming, stimulating essential oil to your wellness routine.
ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL FOR PAIN & RECOVERY
One of the most common uses for rosemary essential oil is in products that are designed to warm, invigorate and stimulate the muscles, because it’s known for its ability to ease soreness and discomfort. In the book “Medical Herbalism” 1 author David Hoffman touts the benefits of rosemary as both a circulatory and nervine stimulant. “Applied externally, it helps ease muscular pain”, he reports. Rosemary can be found throughout our pain & recovery line of products at Saje, and is often paired with other essential oils known to warm and relieve the body like marjoram and sweet birch, as well as with cooling essential oils like peppermint.
