Smelling Rosemary Boosts Memory

If you have to remember something important you may want to smell some rosemary. New research from Northumbria University finds rosemary essential oil is helpful to children’s recollection. This adds to previous research that found it boosts memory in adults. Researchers say they still aren’t sure why or how rosemary has this effect, but it’s possible the aroma affects electrical activity in the brain, or that the active compounds in the herb can be absorbed when adults are exposed.
