How To Use Rosemary For Stress Relief

Rosemary essential oil is a great way to help you out during stressful moments or times but diffusing the oil might not always be an option. A diffuser is certainly helpful to have in your home if you are in a stressful event or at the end of a stressful day to help you relax. If you don’t have rosemary essential oil, burning a spring of rosemary, or rosemary incense, also can have the same helpful effect on your mood and stress levels. If you want to use rosemary to help improve your test performance, as the Greeks did, try dabbing a few drops of rosemary mixed with a carrier oil onto your wrists before going into the test. A spring of rosemary would help too, but I’m pretty sure you’d get lots of stares if you walked into a test room with a rosemary wreath as the Greeks used to.

Other Benefits of Rosemary

As good as rosemary is for stress levels, the staple garden herb has even more uses than just that.

Rosemary is also known to increase the circulation in the body which is another reason why it might help with the growth of hair.

Rosemary also helps with any kind of ailments in the digestion process and helps to relieve muscle pains. As well as helping with digestion, rosemary can help boost the function of your liver which can detox you body easier then and can help to make your body work better overall. Rosemary can also help to relive headaches which can also be associated with its stress-relieving properties as well.

Rosemary has been know for many years to help with many kinds of ailments in the body, but recently studies have found that it can be particularly helpful against stress. At least three separate studies found that inhaling rosemary essential oil can help to relieve and reduce the chemicals associated with increased stress levels in the body and to even help promote the release of dopamine, known as the ‘happy hormone.’ Rosemary is best inhaled, such as in a diffuser, for the most effective benefits against stress, but it can also be burned as incense or inhaled by burning a spring of rosemary, in a pinch. In any case, evidence is starting to pile up that rosemary can be a great alternative way to relieve stress without the use of pharmaceuticals.
