What Makes Rosemary Essential Oil Good For Memory Loss
Is rosemary essential oil really good for memory loss? Well its reputation of improving memory has been around a long time and it is widely known that it enhances thought processes and brings about mental clarity. It is a major stimulant for the brain and the whole nervous system.
It has been recommended for students who are studying for some major exam or other and need their brains working at full capacity. Or for someone about to go into an interview, say for an important job, and who need to remember all the facts they need to say during this interview.
A Word of Caution About Rosemary Essential Oil
While it is a very powerful stimulant for the brain and nervous system, taking too much can cause fits such as epileptic. It has fierce penetrating qualities about it and a little goes a long way. All that is needed is a few drops. Probably the best way to use it is in a diffuser or essential oil burner.

Use of Rosemary in the Kitchen
Rosemary on a try full of potatoes and roasted in the oven is something that makes my mouth water. It is a wonderful herb to use in any kitchen and it dries very well for storage. It grows super well in Ireland even though its a coastal Mediterranean plant. No garden or kitchen should be without it.
