Rosemary has been associated for centuries with having a good memory.
Scientific studies have shown that rosemary increases alertness and improves long-term memory. Recent research is now confirming that rosemary improves memory by as much as 75%.
It turns out that there are compounds in Rosemary Oil that may be responsible for changes in memory performance. One of them is called 1,8-cineole, which prevents the breakdown of a neurotransmitter in the brain, called acetylcholine. Inhalation is one of the best ways of reaping the benefits of this wonderful herb.
How is Rosemary Good for Memory?
When you take a whiff of rosemary, volatile molecules stimulate the olfactory nerve in your nose and are absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, memory-enhancing components of the essential oil travel via the bloodstream to the brain, where they act on memory systems.
