Observations and Anecdotal Information
Rosemary essential oil (verbenon chemotype) makes a great oil for applying as a compress to the chest to clear congestion from lungs and bronchial tubes. It opens breathing passages, breaks up congestion, and eases breathing. It is relaxing and helps relieve coughing and spasm at the same time.
- For nose polyps, apply a 2% dilution of essential oil with a cotton swab into the nostril. Inhale deeply a few times. Repeat until the polyp diminishes.
- Regenerative and tonic, rosemary oil was considered the herb of eternal youth in the Middle Ages in Europe. It can be made into a tea or remedy and taken orally as a general anti-aging tonic.
- Rosemary regenerates hair, and is great for some forms of baldness and hair loss. Massage or spray a 4%-8% dilution into scalp before washing hair. Let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes, then wash hair as usual. I have seen this treatment bring a man’s hair back substantially over just a few weeks, when hair loss had set in.
