Rosemary Essential Oil FAQ
How is Rosemary essential oil made?
If you’ve ever wondered how to make Rosemary essential oil, the answer lies in a process called steam distillation. Steam distillation involves specialized equipment that uses high-powered, pressurized steam to separate the oils from the most potent, aromatic parts of a plant – in this case, the leaves of the Rosemary bush. These oils are then collected and carefully stored to ensure quality and effectiveness.
Although you may have rosemary growing your herb garden, we don’t recommend trying steam distillation at home due to its complex process and the cost of equipment. Instead, we can bring the purest, highest quality Rosemary essential oil to your home in a ready-to-use bottle.
Does Rosemary essential oil cause hair growth?
When using Rosemary essential oil for hair, many people wonder if it causes hair growth. The answer is yes! Although Rosemary won’t reverse severe hair loss caused by genetics or aging, this essential oil contains potent bioactive compounds that increase cellular rejuvenation in hair follicles. This helps stimulate the growth of new hair that’s fuller, smoother, and shinier. Rosemary also helps balance your scalp’s pH and repairs dry or brittle hair, which reduces excess shedding.
Can I apply Rosemary essential oil directly to hair?
We do not recommend applying pure Rosemary oil to your hair or scalp. Because pure essential oils are highly concentrated, they may cause irritation or itching. To use Rosemary essential oil for hair, dilute it with a carrier oil or add 1-3 drops to your standard shampoo or conditioner. Then, gently massage into the scalp and rinse.
What are the Rosemary essential oil benefits for mood?
Rosemary essential oil benefits for mood include anxiety relief and relief from depression. One study found that using Rosemary for aromatherapy may help lower levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress. It can help you feel calm and centered when you become overwhelmed. Additionally, the scent of Rosemary is associated with better concentration, memory, and focus. It may also help treat mental fatigue and brain fog.
