Rosemary oil is also a great all-natural sunburn remedy, insect repellent and mildew and mold remover. Moreover, it can also be used internally to treat various gastrointestinal conditions, such as indigestion, flatulence, stomach cramps, constipation, bloating, liver disease, kidney stones, cataracts, as well as other disorders. It flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, increases appetite, regulates the creation and release of bile, which is a key part of the digestive process, stimulates blood flow and improves circulation, aids the absorption of nutrients from food. I've been diluting it with different base oils (olive, jojoba, grapeseed, almond, avocado or apricot kernel oil) and using it on my skin and scalp, and I've noticed that the condition of my skin and scalp has improved: my complexion has improved, my skin tone has evened out, some pigmentation spots have faded, there's no redness or irritation, my acne has cleared up, my scalp is healthier and no longer dry, itchy, and flaky. Glad I discovered this amazing rosemary oil. Would definitely recommend it.
Great for hair rinsing

The same with all my other essential oils reviewes, I use the rosemary oil in my white vinegar (or ACV) hair rinse (4/5 filtered water, 1/5 white venegar or ACV, and a few drops of essentil oils as a last rinse, after shmapooing). I use it instead of using conditioner, on its own or along with other essential oils such as tea tree oil. The hair gets super smooth and moisturized with the vinegar (its all about the acidic PH of the vinegar which counters the harshness of shamppo and water, nothing else) and the essential oils treat other conditions of the scalp, like dandruff, hair loss, bad oxigenation of the follicles, itchiness etc. Also it doesnt hurt that it smells fresh and hides the vinegar scent (which by the way will only last while the hair is wet). Try it out for yourself, the vinegar rinse plus essential oil combination is not only responsable for greatly reducing my hair products bill, but for giving me the softest and fluffiest hair I have ever had, hands down. I use that ritual for 1 year already and it keeps impressing me more and more. A lot of my friends have adopted it as well!
Keeping things in order with rosemary

My cleaning solution always has rosemary in it not just for a nice smell but for attacking bad bacteria in various areas of the house. I combine it with tea tree oil and a good dose of water in a spray jar and use it on the toilet, the kitchen and bathroom sinks, and where ever there is an area to be cleaned and disinfected. It is also great mixed with almond oil for keeping the feet free of athlete's foot.
Effective for Hair Lice

I bought this for my little niece who had head lice and lice eggs laid along the strands of her hair. We diluted 5 drops of Rosemary oil in 20 drops of jojoba oil, and massaged generously onto her dry hair and scalp an hour before washing. After washing, we massaged a thin layer to stay on. With this, we only had to trim her long hair without giving her a boy-cut.

Good deal for the quantity - smells a little too much like eucalyptus oil - a very strong herbal, medicinal smell rather than the soft soapy smell of many rosemary oils.
