It’s been a while since I’ve obsessed over essential oils and natural oils. ICYMI: I’ve counted down multiple uses of coconut oil, castor oil, almond oil, and lavender oil. I’ve also mentioned that essential oils aren’t always the solution to everything and natural doesn’t necessarily mean better. Having said that, essential oils do solve a lot of life’s problems but be sure you test the oils on small areas before going all out. Step 2: Make sure the oil you’re using is pure enough, but that being said, essential oils are safer with some degree of dilution. Completely pure oils and their medicinal qualities may irritate the skin or body, especially for children. They come diluted with either water, alcohol, or a carrier oil like a vegetable oil or even coconut oil. Coconut oil is just everything, but back to the subject at hand. You may dilute it yourself at home with water, but make sure you do your research before buying or diluting pure essential oils. Moving along swiftly, here are 7 awesome uses of rosemary oil.
Yup, I’m talking about down there… your v, your vjaj, whatever people call it these days. Test it on the outside first, but rosemary oil cures a series of infections to this sensitive area. Essential oils are a great alternative to pharmacy products as antiseptics too.
You can gently apply rosemary oil to your scalp or bald spots for a slight increase in hair growth. It will also help soothe a dry scalp, as well as slowing the growth of grey hairs.
If it’s pure rosemary oil, mix it with a tsp of carrier oil (coconut, or olive oil), and 2 drops of peppermint oil to rub over aching muscles.
Apply diluted rosemary oil to wrinkled areas or massage it into your skin to reap its anti-aging benefits.
Apply a small amount on a cotton ball and apply all over your face. Follow this up with your daily moisturizing routine.
Mix a few tsp with a glass of water and rinse your mouth with it.
Take a cotton ball and add a little apple cider vinegar and rosemary oil. Rub this on your armpits… I swear this is an amazing deodorant.
