Now let's start with the negative, people with epilepsy and animals can have a sezuire brought on by rosemary oils. There is an extract carnosic acid which has been shown to cross the blood brain barrier. They are saying to eat a little rosemary in food is less likely to bring on a seizure but diffusing rosemary oil or using rosemary as an essential oil / extract has had known triggers for sezuire with animals and humans that have epilepsy.

So with rosemary always be careful.If slightly concerned when cooking with it just try a little first or and consult a doctor.

The positive is rosemary is a longevity herb, it helps inflammation, it's an anti oxidant keeping cells healthy and an inflammatory and anti bacterial .It also tastes great with many meals, meats, especially lamb , cheeses ,tomatoes,oven baked/ grilled potatoes and vegetables,stews salads and in drink. l even some mornings put in on my fruit.

My dog has epilepsy although now his thyroid is balanced his sezuires are very rare. I would still never have rosemary essential oils/ extract near him or my home , we both eat rosemary regularly .
