Rosemary, here's the secret to improve memory. In particular, the attention of the experts focused on the perfume of this one aromatic plant very widespread and loved. This is confirmed by a study conducted by experts from the University of Northumbria, whose presentation took place yesterday on the occasion of the British Psychological Society’s Annual Conference.



Remembering events and activities at particular times could be easier thanks to the contribution ofaroma of rosemary. The researchers focused mainly on the perspective memory. It is related to the ability to remember and complete tasks at certain times in the future.

For example, it might be helpful to remind you to take your medicines at a certain time or to send a greeting card. The researchers' experiments involved the use of essential oil of rosemary. In this way its aroma was diffused in a room inside which the volunteers were subjected to assessment test of their memory capacity.

Other volunteers completed the same tests inside a room not flavored with rosemary. The results of the tests showed that those who had been able to take part in the experiment inside the room in which the aroma of rosemary was diffused obtained better results regarding the evaluation of the long-term memory. The essential oil of rosemary could therefore be employed in order to improve cognitive functions in adults, in particular by increasing the ability to remember events and complete tasks in the future.
