A little bottle of memory wonder! As reported in the news (see BBC NEWS), Rosemary is great at boosting the memory. Sniff when revising, then pop a few drops on a handkerchief and take into the exams with you!
This is pure and grown in our beautiful fields. Pick up a bottle here.
From the BBC – With the exam season approaching and revision under way, university researchers have suggested that the smell of rosemary could enhance memory.
A study found that pupils working in a room with the aroma of rosemary, in the form of an essential oil, achieved 5% to 7% better results in memory tests. Mark Moss from Northumbria University said the findings were consistent with tests on adults. Dr Moss said the study supported traditional beliefs about rosemary.
He said that rosemary had been associated with memory for hundreds of years. Ancient Greek students wore garlands of rosemary in exams – and Ophelia, in Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, says: “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.”
