The essential oil of rosemary is used internally as a traditional herbal medicine for the treatment of dyspepsia and spasmodic gastrointestinal disorders. Externally, the extract is used to treat mild muscle and joint pain and mild circulatory disorders [2]. In folk medicine, rosemary is used for general digestive problems, headaches and migraines [3].

In food:
Due to its flavour, essential rosemary oil can be used as a herb extract in many foods.

Rosemary essential oil is also suitable in diluted form for use in food supplements.

The essential oil of rosemary, especially its main components 1,8-cineol, camphor, alpha-pinene, verbenone and beta-caryophyllene have antimicrobial properties against oral pathogens responsible for the development of caries [4]. Therefore, the use of rosemary extract in oral care products such as toothpaste or mouthwashes is conceivable. Moreover, the extract has a characteristic spicy aroma and is suitable as a fragrance in various cosmetic products and perfumes.
