Why We Use Rosemary In Our Skincare

Rosemary has been used for centuries and may be the most recognized herbal medicine. It is used as a seasoning to perfect cooking, tackles bad smells like an air freshener, and dominates the medicinal world eliminating skin irritations and joint pain. At Immunocologie, we are a fan of this mighty leaf extract and use it in many of our products. This mighty ingredient does so much more than add flavor to our Italian food. 

Glowing Skin 

Rosemary leaf extract is full of antioxidants and is an anti-inflammatory, which means it’s great for your skin. Rosmarinic acid found in the extract calms your skin, helping alleviate skin ailments like eczema and even arthritis while improving your blood circulation. It can even help speed up the wound healing process. Next time you have a bruise or gash, try applying some (watered down) rosemary oil.

The power of rosemary goes well beyond improving the skin. It can be used to treat dandruff, boost the immune system, and hydrate your hair during the hot summer months. At Immunocologie we recognize the therapeutic qualities rosemary leaf extract provides which is why it is infused in our Vital Ionic Mist, Night Protect, Body Serum, and Day Protection. These products are great options to protect your skin from sun damage and free radicals. 

 

Calming Effects on Body and Mind

Rosemary is related to mint so it is a great resource to freshen your breath. It is also a great scent to use in your aromatherapy diffuser. If rosemary has a calming effect on your skin, imagine the calming effects it can have on your body and mind.

Improves Memory 

We’ve all had those moments of forgetfulness, but recent studies show Rosemary can benefit future memory. This isn’t a recent finding, in fact, the renowned Shakespeare wrote “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance” in Hamlet hundreds of years ago. Rosemary contains (compounds) which are linked to increased memory performance similar to how a drug for dementia functions. The grounding aroma even helps improve cognitive performance and concentration.
