Leave it to Instagram to hype up its greatness even more—with claims that the oil can help stimulate hair growth. But is it true? Yes! absolutely. But are you using it right? No! A lot of Instagram pages have been promoting different ways to use it without prior knowledge of essential oils which can be extremely damaging.

What is Rosemary Oil?

Rosemary essential oil is the pale liquid oil produced along with Rosemary Hydrosol by the process of steam distillation using fresh Rosemary Leaves. It is a herbaceous and pungent oil that can be used in diffuser and perfume blends, cosmetic recipes for skin and hair health, and household cleaning.

  • Never ever use it directly. It can severely damage skin/scalp.
  • Never mix it with water. Water and oils are immiscible.
  • Stay away from DIYs on Instagram mentioning "add 4-5 drops to your hair masks", "4-5 drops to water and use on scalp".
  • Buy 100% pure, rosemary essential oil by questioning the brand where and how it is made. Many sellers are just selling artificial fragrance in the bottle.
