Rosemary is a herb that grows on the evergreen shrub known as Salvia rosmarinus (formerly Rosmarinus officinalis). The rosemary plant is native to the Mediterranean region and has been used in cooking and herbal/folklore medicine for thousands of years.

Today it grows across Asia, America and Europe.

How is rosemary used? It’s most often used for culinary purposes, including adding earthiness and other flavors to recipes. Additionally, it has many therapeutic and household uses, including making herbal teas, candles, perfumes, hair care products and more.

It’s in the same plant family as mint (the Lamiaceae family, which consists of more than 7,000 species), yet doesn’t have the same distinct menthol flavor.

The rosemary plant is also the source of concentrated rosemary essential oil, which is used to help relieve conditions including pain, inflammation, gastrointestinal pains, anxiety and respiratory issues. The essential oil of rosemary has been found to contain many protective compounds, including:

  • cineole
  • camphor
  • α-pinene
  • borneol
  • rosmarinic acid
  • rosmanol
  • carnosol
  • carnosic acid

Rosemary in Hair Care

Rosemary’s stimulating and restorative herbal properties are a perfect match for hair. Rosemary is lauded in herbal medicine as a circulatory stimulant and beneficial when applied externally. Applying rosemary to the scalp is said to keep the hair follicles healthy and prevent hair loss. Rosemary also moisturizes hair and enhances shine in dark hair.  At NuLeaf we specialize in growing these natural  healing compounds in our specially designed growth chambers.  Once matured, our hydroponic rosemary is hand harvested and steam distilled creating an all natural, chemical free rosemary hydrosol ideal for creating strong vibrant hair.
