How to add rosemary to your beauty routine?
You can use rosemary hair oil to promote healthy hair growth. It can also resolve your itchy and dandruff scalp issues. For homemade rosemary oil take some dried rosemary leaves and one small cup of oil in a pan. Let it simmer for a few minutes on medium flame. Now strain the leaves from oil.
