Rosemary Rosemary also referred to as Rosmarinus officinalis L. (rosemary) is cultivated around the world and has been identified as a medicinal plant native to the Mediterranean region. Rosemary oil has different therapeutic effects on the body due to its bioactive molecules constituents. The health benefits of this study will be identified; Analgesic effects A study was carried out to determine and compare the effectiveness of menthol and rosemary in musculoskeletal pain in hemodialysis patients. The study included 105 patients currently undergoing hemodialysis and divided into three groups, rosemary, menthol, and placebo groups. They were treated for three days and pain assessment was done four hours after the morning and evening treatment. Both the rosemary and menthol exhibited analgesic effects, but the study did not observe differences between them. Reduce the creatine kinase A study was carried out to determine the effect of rosemary essential oil on the responses of lactate dehydrogenase, creatine kinase (CK), lymphocytes, neutrophils, muscle swelling (MS), and muscle pain (MP) following eccentric leg curl exercise in non-active women. A total of 24 non-active females were included and divided equally into three groups; rosemary dose 1 (RD1), rosemary dose 2 (RD2), and placebo. There was a significant reduction in the level of CK in RD2, which shows that rosemary affects CK concentration. Cognitive effects A study was conducted to investigate possible acute effects of dried rosemary leaf powder on cognitive performance. The study included twenty-eight older adults with a mean age of 75 years. They were treated with different doses of rosemary oil. There was a biphasic dose-dependent effect in measures of speed of memory: the lowest dose of rosemary given had a statistically significant beneficial effect compared with placebo (P=.01), whereas the highest dose had a significantly impairing effect. Rosemary oil can have a positive effect on cognitive function if used appropriately. Effective in androgenetic alopecia treatment A study aimed to investigate the clinical efficacy of rosemary oil in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and compare its effects with minoxidil. One hundred participants were included and divided into two groups and treated with rosemary oil and minoxidil for 6 months. The efficacy and safety evaluation was done every 3 months. The findings of the study trial provided evidence concerning the efficacy of rosemary oil in the treatment of AGA. Antifungal activities. A comparative study evaluated the effectiveness of chemical and herbal (rosemary oil, basil oil, and coleus oil) antidandruff ingredients and their performance in shampoos was done in vitro against Malassezia furfur. It was observed that of the essentials included (rosemary oil, basil oil, and coleus oil), rosemary oil exhibited the strongest inhibitory activities with O.5%. Rosemary oil exhibited good antifungal activities. References Trupti PK, Gadekar SS. To study the antidandruff activity of rosemary oil, basil oil, coleus oil over selenium sulfide.
