A new study suggests that essential oil can boost brain performance. The scent of essential oil rosemary could boost brain performance and help boost a person's health. A new study conducted by researchers in Northumbria, Great Britain discovered that the smell of rosemary did improve the ability of individuals to remember events as well as the tasks they need to complete at a particular time. In a study conducted on 66 people, the researchers wanted to find out if the smell of rosemary can enhance memory. In addition, the essential oil has a lot of great therapeutic effects on different systems in the human body.

New study by Northumbrian researchers prove memory-boosting claim

Researchers from Northumbria concluded that people who smelled rosemary experienced improvements in their memory. Dr. Mark Moss, the author of the research, said that his team focused more on prospective memory, the kind of memory that involves people's ability to remember events that would happen in the future as well as their ability to remember tasks that they would have to complete at particular times. His co-author, Jemma McCready, added that the findings of their study could have significant implications for treating people with memory impairment.

In their study, participants were asked to perform memory tasks. One group worked in a room with the rosemary scent while another group worked in a separate room without the scent. Results show that those who smelled the essential oil performed better on tasks that involved prospective memory than those who did not smell the scent.

Previous research and tradition tell of the benefits of rosemary

A number of previous researches have suggested that the scent of rosemary could improve cognition in healthy adults and enhance their ability to remember events as well as the tasks they have to accomplish. In ancient times, the essential oil was used in occasions such as weddings and funerals and was burned in schools to keep students protected from dizziness as well as brain weakness.

Other therapeutic benefits of rosemary

Aside from boosting prospective memory, rosemary had a number of other health-boosting benefits. For instance, some use it in massage and in bathing as it has antiseptic, antioxidant and astringent properties. It can also help dry and mature skin produce more natural oils of its own. Likewise, it can help people who are losing hair and have problems with dandruff.

Similarly, the essential oil could also ease muscle and rheumatism pain and improve poor circulation. It could also aid in digestion and improve appetite.

For those who experience lung congestion or sore throat, they could either add rosemary to a vapor balm or inhale it to relieve themselves of such problems.

This essential oil can also boost a person's energy and stimulate his nervous system. Rosemary can also help in getting rid of canker sores.
