HERB – Rosemary Linked to Improved Thinking

HERB –  Rosemary Linked to Improved Thinking With a Sniff

Smell the fresh rosemary and you could improve the thinking.

The results published in Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology,  published by SAGE Publications.

Results showed absorption of 1,8-coneole into the bloodstream, meaning the natural compound was absorbed through the nose and into the blood plasma.

MSN Story on Rosemary

Just sniff the fresh rosemary.

Look up books by Dr. Alan Hirsch and info on the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.

Sniffing peppermint to subdue the appetite is pretty common diet advice at this point.

have read many places that citrus scents also help to decrease one’s appetite. Many dietitians recommend burning a grapefruit scented candle in the house (grapefruit is preferred over other citrus scents for some reason) in order to decrease appetite. I’ve never heard of peppermint (the smell) lowering one’s appetite, but I’ve heard several people say if you are hungry, just chew some peppermint gum and it will take the edge off your hunger. All very interesting stuff to me. One person I know says if he is hungry but it isn’t lunchtime or dinnertime, he brushes his teeth with a mint toothpaste. That suppresses his appetite.
