Rosemary, or Salvia rosmarinus, the versatile flowering herb is best known for its fragrant leaves, so widely used as a flavour enhancing ingredient. Originating from the Mediterranean, Rosemary plants enjoy sunny, sheltered land with gritty soil that drains well.
Other than a culinary aid enhancer, Rosemary was used by the ancient Romans and Greeks to improve memory. Research has displayed a connection between Rosemary and brain function. In tests, inhaling Rosemary Oil improved concentration and recall far better than other essential oils and against a blind.
More recently, it has been claimed that Rosemary Oil can help with hair loss. The reality is that simply applying Rosemary oil to the scalp is unlikely to bring back a lost hairline. A 2015 study, however, suggested Rosemary Oil worked as well as Minoxidil – a proven topical hair loss solution – to improve the hair count within 6 months.
Besides hair loss, Rosemary Oil is a strong anti-inflammatory that helps reduce itching and can improve circulation to the hair follicles on the scalp as well as improve nerve connections – all important components in hair retention.
The inclusion of Rosemary Oil within the Juniper Scalp Therapy Shampoo can best be summarised by its:
– Anti-inflammatory properties on the skin
– Ability to reduce hair shedding
– Improvements in blood circulation to the hair follicles
– Ability to reduce itching
– Restorative properties for the hair and skin
