We received this VERY large 4 oz bottle of Rosemary essential oils quite quickly and packaged VERY well, there was no spillage, nor any scent of the oil inside the packaging. This oil is 100% pure, bottled in a dark bottle to keep the oils therapeutic properties intact. It is claimed that Rosemary oil applied to the scalp can keep you from graying as much or as quickly, regrow and strengthen hair. It is also good for dandruff when applied to the scalp. I’ve added as much as 10-15 drops to a 8 oz bottle of shampoo and have added it to my air diffuser for aromatherapy. I enjoy the slightly woodsy scent by itself or in combination with Clary Sage, lavender oils or with any of the mint oils and eucalyptus. The oil was bottled in the USA, it is also pharmaceutical grade.
With all essential oils you want to dilute using a carrier oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil or olive oil due to the strength of this oil it can cause irritation if applied directly to skin. I am adding other information I have gathered on it’s other uses. This seller offers a 100% money back guarantee.
According to Modern Essentials, a guide to the therapeutic uses of essential oils, high-quality rosemary oil has analgesic, antibacterial, anticancer, anticatarrhal, antifungal, anti-infection, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and expectorant properties.
The book’s A-Z list of rosemary oil uses covers many health concerns, including for the following:
- Clarity – Add a drop to your hands, rub together, and cup over your mouth and nose for up to a minute
- Cough – Massage one to two drops over your chest and throat every few hours
- Headaches – Add a drop to your hands, and cup over your mouth and nose for up to a minute. You may also apply a drop topically to the aching parts of your head.
- Learning and memory – Diffuse the oil throughout the room, inhale directly from the bottle, rub over your temples, or apply to your toes regularly.
- At times, rosemary oil may also cause allergic reactions, so consult your doctor for proper use. It is volatile in nature, which means it can cause vomiting and spasms. Therefore, do not ingest it. Again, it is strongly recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women to avoid using rosemary essential oil, as it can affect the fetus or lead to miscarriage.
Rosemary oil also appears to work wonders on anxiety. A study published in Holistic Nursing Practice in 2009  found that the use of sachets containing lavender and rosemary essential oils helped reduce anxiety associated with test-taking.
Using this essential oil seems to benefit brain health, too. A 2003 study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience, which involved 144 volunteers, found that rosemary oil helped improve mood in healthy adults. There is also a positive effect proposed for Alzheimer’s patients – a small study in 2009  found that one month of aromatherapy involving rosemary, lemon, lavender, and orange essential oils helped enhanced cognitive function, especially in Alzheimer’s patients.
