Rosemary oil benefits for Hair
Rosemary oil benefits for Skin
Popularly known as rosemary, is an aromatic plant with needle-like leaves belonging to the Lamiaceae family. Rosemary has therapeutic properties and has been used in the folk medicine, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries, mainly for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which are attributed to carnosol/carnosic and ursolic acids. Carnosic acid was reported to be a potent nitric oxide (NO) inhibitor; NO is a pro-inflammatory mediator that induces or enhances the inflammatory process. (de Macedo, et al., 2020). The effects of Rosemary oil’s hydroalcoholic extract resulted in a dose-dependent reduction of human melanoma cell proliferation. Mutations in melanocytes are attributed to the excessive exposure of the skin to sunlight and induce the development of melanomas. The cell cycle proliferation was inhibited in vitro because of the cytotoxic and cytostatic activity of the hydroalcoholic extract. (de Macedo, et al., Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L., syn Salvia rosmarinus Spenn.) and Its Topical Applications, 2020)
Skin flaps are used to reconstruct soft tissues and large wound defects. This technique has been employed in plastic surgery, and its efficacy depends on the wound’s location and the extent of the defect. The study reported antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and vasodilatory activities of the oil as factors for the increased tissue survival (de Macedo, et al., Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L., syn Salvia rosmarinus Spenn.) and Its Topical Applications, 2020)
The therapeutic use of rosemary has been explored for treating inflammatory diseases; According to other studies, it treats such as wound healing and skin cancer and mycoses treatments, among others. Besides its therapeutic uses, rosemary has potential applications in cosmetic formulations and in treating pathological and non-pathological conditions, such as cellulite, alopecia, ultraviolet damage, and aging. (Sellar, The Directory of Essential Oil , 1992)
