Ingredient Name: Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Extract
What is it? Rosemary is an herb with pine-needle-like leaves that is native to the Mediterranean and has a potent citrus and woody scent. Rosemary is loaded with powerful phytochemicals that provide a wide range of health benefits, including rosmarinic acid, camphor, caffeic acid, ursolic acid, betulinic acid, carnosic acid, and carnosol. This powerful medicinal plant has been used since ancient times as a remedy to many aliments, including fungal and bacterial infections, swelling, and inflammation, as well as to increase blood circulation and improve memory.
Why do we use it? We use rosemary extract in our Mother of All Creams for its soothing actions and in our Pain Relief Cream for its powerful anti-inflammatory effects. We use it in our Wonder Balm because research has shown that it's very effective against common bacteria and common candida strains. Rosemary extract is also in our Scalp Therapy products because of its ability to stimulate blood flow and control dandruff.
