How Sniffing Rosemary Can Improve Memory By 75%.

Rosemary is a herb which we normally use in the kitchen but it has also been used as herbal medicines even during the ancient times. It has been called the herb of remembrance from the Elizabethan Era to the Early Romantic Period. Aside from enhancing ones memory it was also believed that rosemary can protect sleeper from having nightmares thus, they make an amulet using the herb and they place it underneath their pillowcases.

Recent studies have proven that indeed rosemary can enhance ones memory and this could be due to the eucalyptol found in the aroma of the herb. Studies were conducted involving older people wherein rosemary was used for aromatherapy. As a result it promoted mental quality to participants of the study. The eucalyptol, a compound found in rosemary, plays an important role in the development of memories in animal models.

Rosemary oil enhances memory as its aroma contains terpenes, a primary component of essential oils. This enables the components of rosemary to enter the bloodstream then it travels to the brain and act on memory systems.

Rather than using memory enhancing products that might have side effects, let us opt for herbal medicines which are all natural. This has been used for thousands of years and this only shows how effective rosemary is.

Rosemary is a wonderful herb with a tradition of use spanning millennia. It has innumerable uses in both the kitchen and in herbal medicine.

Did you know that rosemary has been associated with memory enhancement since ancient times? It is true – and it has even been referred to from the latter part of the Elizabethan Era to the Early Romantic period as the herb of remembrance. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” (Hamlet, iv.  It has also long been used as a symbol for remembrance during weddings, war commemorations and funerals in Europe and Australia.  Mourners in old times would wear it as a buttonhole, burn it as incense or throw it into graves as a symbol of remembrance for the dead.

It seems that this tradition of Rosemary may actually far more ancient and have its origins in the Arabic world of medieval times, which was greatly advanced in science: In Henry Lyte’s 1578 “Niewe Herball“, an English version of Rembert Dodoens’ French treatise, it is written “The Arrabians and their successors Physitions, do say that Rosemarie comforteth the brayne, the memory and the inward senses, and that it restoreth speech, especially the conserve made of the flowers, thereof with Sugar, to be received daily.” 

Because of this seemingly esoteric association, rosemary has at times been made into a sort of herbal-amulet, where it was placed beneath pillowcases, or simply smelt as a bouquet, and it was believed that using rosemary in these ways could protect the sleeper from nightmares, as well as increase their memory.

What’s fascinating is that several scientific studies have now found remarkable results for rosemary’s effects on memory:

Rosemary essential oil’s role in aromatherapy as an agent that promotes mental clarity was validated by the study of Moss, Cook, Wesnes, and Duckett (2003) in which the inhalation of rosemary essential oil significantly enhanced the performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors of study participants.

More recently, in 2012 a study on 28 older people (average 75 years old) found statistically significant dose-dependent improvements in cognitive performance with doses of dried rosemary leaf powder.

Another study by Mark Moss and Lorraine Oliver at Northumbria University, Newcastle has identified 1,8-cineole (a compound in rosemary) as an agent potentially responsible for cognitive and mood performance.

Further studies by Mark Moss and team have found memory enhancements of up to an amazing 75% from diffusion of rosemary essential oil.

Now if you are asking “How is it even possible that an aroma can enhance memory?” – well, that’s a great question. Here’s a fascinating quote from one of the scientific papers referenced: “Volatile compounds (e.g. terpenes) may enter the blood stream by way of the nasal or lung mucosa. Terpenes are small organic molecules which can easily cross the blood-brain barrier and therefore may have direct effects in the brain by acting on receptor sites or enzyme systems

Terpenes are primary components of essential oils and are often strong smelling, responsible for a diverse array of natural aromas. It’s also been found that 1,8-cineole enters the bloodstream of mammals after inhalation or ingestion.
