As seen in Woman’s World magazine! Shakespeare said, “Rosemary is for remembrance…” and science is proving that to be true. High in antioxidants and rich in flavor, rosemary works much like an Alzheimer’s drug, stimulating activity in the brain’s frontal lobe. To get the benefits, enjoy 1 tsp. of fresh or 1/4 tsp. dried rosemary blended into marinades or tossed with meat and veggies, then roasted. For a more immediate boost, mix 2 drops rosemary essential oil into almond oil, then massage into skin and breathe deeply.
For the more than 50% of women over age 50 who have thinning hair, help is here! One of my favorite ways to combat sparse strands is with rosemary. The herb contains rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to boost circulation to the scalp and promote hair growth as effectively as minoxidil. To get the benefits: Add 4 Tbs. of dried rosemary to 4 cups of boiled water. Steep for 40 minutes, then strain the brew into a large spray bottle and add 4 Tbs. apple cider vinegar; refrigerate. Spritz onto the scalp once or twice a week after shampooing.
