I must say, I love, love, ROSEMARY this wonder herb is great for many different things. You can experiment with it when exercising your culinary skills, or if you play with creating your own bath and body products. Per Wikipedia this herb is known as:
Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers … Rosemary is an herb. Oil is extracted from the leaf and used to make medicine. You can research other sources for a more creditable definition or more information.
I personally use rosemary for cooking, this herbs has such a great aroma giving fish, poultry or meats a great savory taste. I also use it in creating our Skin Candy handcrafted soaps and other bath and body products. Stringently enough, when using our Simply Fresh rosemary soap bar, I found that it’s great for untangling my hair. This is a blessing for me with C 3 type curls. But that is not it’s only benefit, it’s known for helping with hair loss, it’s also good for many other ailments. WebMD have listed the following medicinal uses for Rosemary:
It is used for digestion problems, including heartburn, intestinal gas (flatulence), liver and gallbladder complaints, and loss of appetite. It is also used for gout, cough, headache, high blood pressure, and reducing age-related memory loss.
Rosemary is used topically (applied to the skin) for preventing and treating baldness; and treating circulation problems, toothache, a skin condition called eczema, and joint or muscle pain such as myalgia, sciatica, and intercostal neuralgia. It is also used for wound healing, in bath therapy (balneotherapy), and as an insect repellent.
Unfortunately some women use rosemary to increase menstrual flow and causing abortions. We don’t recommend.
We at Skin Candy use Rosemary in manufacturing our soaps and other bath and body products using the essential oils as a component to scent our products. For more Skin Candy Spa Product information please visit our website at: www.skincandyspa.com
