Yoga Journal Review
Rosemary may bring to mind soups or stews, but the oil has uses beyond the kitchen. The oil, derived from the leaves of the herbs, is said to improve brain function, boost energy, relieve pain, and improve skin and hair. And Cliganic rosemary oil is one of the best we’ve tested.
Many essential oils out there are diluted with synthetic ingredients and fillers, which made our testers appreciate Cliganic’s commitment offering a certified organic, 100% pure, therapeutic grade rosemary, which has a fresh, woodsy scent.
This steam-distilled rosemary oil veers toward a more subtle strength, which our testers found perfect for diffusing, enjoyable when added into a bath or shower. It’s energizing when put on a tissue and sniffed for a few seconds, especially right before taking on daunting mental tasks (makes sense: inhaling rosemary oil helps prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a brain chemical important for thinking, memory, and concentration.)
Rosemary oil has shown to be effective in soothing inflammation that can make skin red and puffy. Adding a few drops of Cliganic rosemary oil to a carrier oil (try the brand’s argan oil) reduced under-eye circles and puffiness. That same anti-inflammatory property helps keep dandruff at bay when you spritz it on your hair or mix a few drops into your shampoo.

Loving my Cliganic rosemary oil! Rosemary essential oil is said to be great for stress relief. I keep it on my desk & just a dab 3 times a day makes me feel more relaxed and the smell alone instantly calms my nerves. – Anne H.
I know that rosemary is good for your hair, so I’ve added a couple of drops to my shampoo. The packaging of this brand is nice in that it has the organic and non-GMO label on it. – Kim K.
