Does your stomach make humiliating noises as it turns over in upset? Rosemary supports healthy digestion. Frequently used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, rosemary offers a number of health benefits.
The oil possesses natural digestive properties that help protect against issues like upset stomach or indigestion. In fact, rosemary can sooth aches and soreness, which makes it an effective oil for muscle and joint health as well.
Moreover, rosemary is a reliever of nervous tension and so can help relieve fatigue. The oil’s strong digestive properties, along with its natural ability to flavor, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you’re firing up the summer grill.
To strengthen digestion, apply a topical application of rosemary to the abdomen and the reflex points of the feet or add 1-2 drops rosemary to a meat dish or entrÇe. Not much oil is needed for big flavor.
For emotional support, diffuse the oil throughout the home.
