How sniffing rosemary can increase memory by 75%

How sniffing rosemary can increase memory by 75% | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Rosemary has been associated with memory enhancement since ancient times. There are many well known health benefits of the herb rosemary but scientists are now studying its specific effects with regard to memory with outstanding results.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Rosemary essential oil’s role in aromatherapy as an agent that promotes mental clarity was validated by the study of Moss, Cook, Wesnes, and Duckett (2003) in which the inhalation of rosemary essential oil significantly enhanced the performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors of study participants.

More recently, in 2012 a study on 28 older people (average 75 years old) found statistically significant dose-dependent improvements in cognitive performance with doses of dried rosemary leaf powder.

Another study by Mark Moss and Lorraine Oliver at Northumbria University, Newcastle has identified 1,8-cineole (a compound in rosemary) as an agent potentially responsible for cognitive and mood performance.

Further studies by Mark Moss and team have found memory enhancements of up to an amazing 75% from diffusion of rosemary essential oil."
