Rosemary has been traditionally used for dyspepsia and mild disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, minor muscular and articular pain and in minor peripheral circulatory disorders.

It relieves the symptoms of indigestion, constipation and colitis, regularizes bloodpressure, retards the hardening of arteries, relieves rheumatic pain which aggravates due to cold, stimulates the nervous system, and provides potential for improving
cognitive function. It has excellent skin tonic properties, soothes menstrual cramps, stimulates the scalp encouraging hair growth and providing treatment for dandruff and greasy hair. Rosemary aroma can improve concentration, performance, speed, accuracy and, to some extent, mood.
