Rosemary was already known in Roman times. The herbal plant was brought by the Romans from the Mediterranean region to the rest of Europe. They knew then that this plant can be used in cooking and cosmetics, and nowadays rosemary oil continues to be a modern beauty highlight. Having already described the benefits of rosemary water, in the following article we will give you helpful information on how to use it and what effect it can have on your skin and hair.

Hair loss scalp rosemary oil as a helper

  • If you have problems with hair loss

Rosemary oil is a wonderful hair and scalp conditioner. It slows down hair loss, which is often caused by hormonal fluctuations, such as during pregnancy or menopause. In such a case, rosemary oil is a faithful helper, because it can positively influence hair growth. The hair follicles are strengthened by the miracle oil and the scalp has an improved oxygen supply because it binds oxygen. We give you a useful tip on the subject: it is best to buy rosemary oil from Spain. You need 6 drops of it, which should be mixed with a neutral oil (olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, etc.) and then massaged into the scalp. A few hours this “hair cure” should act – in the best case, of course, overnight. The next day, everything is rinsed out thoroughly.

  • Rosemary oil against dandruff: a good helper

Rosemary essential oil can also be used in another problem case, namely against dandruff, because it has a soothing effect on irritated scalp. As a result, cracked areas are cared for. The dandruff shampoos found in most stores are not as gentle as rosemary oil. However, if you are not sure what the problem behind the dandruff is and if it is serious, it is best to be examined by a dermatologist. If it is severe itching, hair loss or crusting, there could be a disease behind it. Neurodermatitis cannot be ruled out as a possibility in this case. As a cosmetic alternative to the above anti-dandruff shampoos, rosemary oil can be obtained from Spain or North America. You can mix 10 drops from the rosemary oil directly into the bottle with your shampoo and then use it as usual.

Another application and positive effect rosemary oil often finds if you have oily hair. It reduces sebum production and as a result, the hair does not grease as quickly. This leads to less frequent hair washes, which has a positive effect on the scalp prone to dermatological problems. Here you can also mix your shampoo with the oil, or rosemary oil with other neutral oils to get a cure.

Beauty tips for the skin

It is best to take a towel and place it over your head so that the steam is concentrated on your face. This will open your pores ideally, which will reduce sebum.
