Rosemary is a herb native to the Mediterranean region, but today it's cultivated all over the world Its use for medical purposes was described by ancient writers like Theophrastus and Pliny. It was used in Roman times against fatigue and in the Middle Age as protection against witches.

Rosemary helps fight free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules with a single unpaired electron. They're created when you're exposed to UV rays. There is a study where scientists found out that when ROS (free radicals) come in contact with rosemary extract, it actually helps inhibit them and prevent damage to collagen and elastin fibers in human cells. There are also some studies that suggest rosemary extracts may help reduce skin redness. Fragrance from essential oils of lavender and rosemary actually reduce cortisol levels: When we feel stressed, our bodies produce the hormone "cortisol". High cortisol levels lead to increased ageing, as it causes free radical formation and prevents our cells from repairing damaged DNA. This is why aromatherapy with fragrances like rosemary and lavender may actually help you relax and reduce skin redness.
