5 Ways to Use Rosemary for
Gorgeous Hair and Skin
We were wandering in the garden of goop’s Amagansett pop-up last summer when landscape artist Miranda Brooks mentioned that an herbalist had advised her to make sure to touch her rosemary plants every day. “It’s good for women to do,” she said mysteriously. Indeed, the power of rosemary goes back to ancient times, when it was rumored to help with everything from digestion to brain function to healthy hair. It’s also, of course, delicious. Whether we’re drinking it in a refreshing new tonic or massaging it into our summer-damaged hair, rosemary has become our new favorite, super beautifying ingredient.
