      What herbal practitioners say about Rosemary leaf

      Rosemary is a wonderful culinary herb as well as herbal remedy.  It stimulates digestion, improving appetite and the flow of digestive juices and reduces flatulence and bloating.  It stimulates the production of bile in the liver, improving liver function and efficiency.  It is a useful circulatory stimulant, stimulating blood flow to the head improving memory and concentration, and can be used in the prevention of migraines.  Rosemary can be used externally as a rubefacient to ease muscular pain, which is worse in cold weather, nerve pain and sciatica.  The essential oil can be used to stimulate the hair follicles in premature baldness.

      Rosemary is useful in the treatment of heavy periods, and increases both Phase I and II liver detoxification pathways helping to decongest the liver of toxic substances that have built up including hormones and medical drugs.  Rosemary can be combined with feverfew in the treatment and prevention of migraines.
