Aromatic rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ) is rich with phytonutrients, and can help protect skin against sun damage.[1] An evergreen shrub native to Mediterranean climates, it grows abundantly out here in California. We tend to like rosemary primarily for its scent and its antiseptic properties, which are considerable.[2] It also stimulates increased blood supply when applied to the externally, which helps oxygenate cells. If you’re using rosemary essential oil, make sure it’s properly diluted before applying externally, as it can irritate the skin in high concentrations.
