How to Use Rosemary for Mental Clarity?

Who doesn’t want to have better mental clarity? You spend all day long working behind a computer, and you need to be able to think clearly. Surely, some of you have probably thought of using herbal medicines to help get through your brain fog. Though most of you probably have never thought about using rosemary as the herb of choice.

What is rosemary?

Rosemary is commonly used is European cooking. If you eat Mediterranean food such as Italian cooking, you’ve probably tasted rosemary before. The French also use rosemary and it’s something you’ve probably enjoyed if you’ve ever enjoyed a fine dining experience.

Rosemary oil is where the action is

Well, it is for many people. You can whiff rosemary oil, and its effects waft directly into your system that way. It’s an easy way to enjoy all the benefits of rosemary without having to do pretty much anything other than inhale.

You can also mix rosemary oil with coconut oil and rub it into your temples or wrists. Your skin will absorb all the goodies in the rosemary oil, and you’ll notice a spike in mental clarity. It sounds odd that applying anything to your skin would make your brain function better, but that’s how the body works. You put something here, and it affects you over there, as the Chinese have learned over the past couple thousand years.

Rosemary tea is delicious

You haven’t lived until you’ve had a fresh cup of rosemary tea. You steep some rosemary for about five to ten minutes and then drain it off. You can add a touch of honey or some lemon juice to make it taste better.

As you might have guessed, some people are going to be turned off by the flavor of rosemary tea. It takes a little getting used to, and that’s why you might want to add some flavorings to it. A little lemon is good, but you want to be careful with the honey. You don’t want to add too many calories to what would otherwise be a healthy drink.

Don’t forget to incorporate rosemary in your cooking

A lot of people like to add rosemary to meat dishes. You can also add it to grilled meats and vegetables. Rosemary-infused oil and vinegar are a great way to get more rosemary in your diet. Be warned, don’t buy oil or vinegar that has been infused with rosemary. Make your own rosemary-infused oils and vinegar, so you know how fresh they are. Not only will you know they’re fresh, but you’ll save a ton of money doing it yourself.

The best way to use rosemary infused oils and vinegars is in salads. The cooking process doesn’t degrade the rosemary, but it does have an impact. It’s always best to stick to eating it as close to the raw form as possible. Plus, you’ll notice it’s far more delicious if you eat it in a salad as opposed to frying up a bunch of chicken in rosemary infused oil.

Rosemary, for your mental health

You should run out and buy some rosemary today if you don’t have some. With that said, you shouldn’t go nuts and eat it every day. Eating rosemary will have an effect on your mental clarity, but like with everything else, a little goes a long way. If you go overboard, you’ll burn yourself out and never want to taste rosemary ever again.
