Rosemary Oil: Does the latest trending ingredient really work?

If you’re on TikTok, you’ve most likely heard of the latest beauty trend sweeping across the platform, rosemary oil. The hashtag #RosemaryOil has racked up 1.1 billion views so far, and counting! It’s been hailed for its incredible hair growth, scalp soothing and stimulating benefits, with many posting their fantastic results from the natural oil.

At ishga, we’re advocates of using the power of nature in our beauty regimes. We use a high quality organic rosemary essential oil for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and soothing properties in our popular and award-winning Muscle Recovery Oil. So, you may have heard about the wonders it can do for hair, but let’s take a look at the skincare benefits of rosemary oil as well…

Skincare benefits of rosemary oil

Rosemary oil is an antioxidant

Rosemary oil, like many of our ingredients, is a natural antioxidant that can protect skin against free radicals in the environment, which break down the collagen in our skin and lead to fine lines and wrinkles. When blended with our unique antioxidant-rich Hebridean seaweed extract, it has powerful results for all skin types. Rosemary oil has also been found to improve circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage, helping to reduce toxins in the skin.

Rosemary oil is an anti-inflammatory

Rosemary oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties which may help to soothe redness and irritation and balance the skin. When used in massage, it can help to reduce muscle fatigue and relax the body and mind, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and restored. Alongside its antioxidant and antibacterial compounds, it can truly work wonders for our skin.

Rosemary oil nourishes all skin types

Rosemary oil is a natural astringent, meaning it can help to reduce the look of pores and tighten the look of our complexion. It is an excellent ingredient for all skin types, as it also balances the natural production of oils. Those with oily skin often think that oils should be avoided, however it is actually beneficial to use oils like our Nourishing Face Oil which will help to reduce over-production of the skin’s natural oils. Rosemary oil has also been found to deeply cleanse pores and help fight acne due to its potent antibacterial and non-comedogenic properties.

Rosemary oil can uplift your mood

Rosemary oil has powerful aromatherapeutic properties, including its ability to reduce stress levels, relieve nervous tension, improve mental clarity and fatigue as well as boosting alertness. When used in combination with other essential oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus and may chang (featured in our Muscle Recovery Oil), it can help to improve mood and create an uplifting experience through the blend of beautiful natural aromas.
