Rosemary and Her Wonders

One thing that can cause me to completely lose track of time, is making natural hair and body products using essential oils, resins and balsams. There is such a wide range of nature’s oils, that blending these live substances is a mixture of art and science.  In addition to their healing powers, these oils (many of them classified as precious) possess the ability to affect your consciousness, to relax or stimulate or send you reeling down memory lane.  My heart and mind are transported when I inhale these earthly/spirit substances.  Their vapors range from the sublime to the bodacious.

The legendary Rosemary oil falls in the latter category. Its power is clear from the first sniff. In other words, a little goes a long way. The essence of this oil is strong and exhilarating, like inhaling a hit of electrified oxygen.  Thirty-plus years later, the Medicinal Hair Oil spiked with rosemary is still a big seller and my personal favorite that I use on my own hair and scalp.  After centuries, this legendary herb continues to grow in popularity.  Rosemary is antibacterial, antiviral, and an antiseptic having the ability to heal you from head to toe.

Medicinal Oil

Right from the start I was fascinated by rosemary’s ability to heal the scalp and grow and strengthen the hair. So I decided rosemary would have to be the primary essence in my first hair product, which is our ever-popular Medicinal Hair Oil.  This healing plant was exactly what I was looking for.

One way that I use Anu Essentials Medicinal Hair Oils: after shampooing and conditioning my hair I add the oil to my scalp and gently but firmly massage in the oil. This is when the scalp is most porous and relaxed from the warm water and the massage of the shampoo experience.  Now the pores are open and ready to receive the oil. You can take this experience to the next level by having a deep conditioning–steam treatment, which will cause the pores to further expand and the oils to penetrate deeper into the hair shaft and follicles.

Rosemary works on several levels at once, providing the added advantage of stimulating the mind and increasing memory. That’s the great thing about the use of essential oils: instead of nasty side affects, you acquire additional benefits. I recently discovered, via firsthand experience, that rosemary oil also greatly reduces menstrual cramps.  Makes me think that rosemary was made with the care of women in mind.

If you’d like to strengthen your hair, get rid of dry, itchy, or flaking scalp, definitely check out Anu Essentials Medicinal Hair Oil. Not only will you heal your scalp and help grow your hair, you will have the extra benefit of stimulating your brain cells!  Get Smart, Get Anu Essentials Medicinal Hair Oil.



  1. I plan on making my own rosemary oil this weekend. I have a prolific rosemary bush and I know the benefits of rosemary; so this will be my next experiment. I love going back to nature.
