AIMAN INAM WASHINGTON DC: In a recent study, which was presented here at the British Psychological Society’s Annual Conference in Nottingham, scientists have noted that aroma of Rosemary could help augment the reminiscence of older adults. To observe the effect of Rosemary aroma on elderly people’s reminiscence, approximately 150 people, aged more than 65, had been placed in rooms bearing either rosemary or lavender or no odor. “These findings support previous research indicating that the aroma of rosemary essential oil can enhance cognitive functioning in healthy adults. This is the first time that similar effects have been demonstrated in the healthy people over 65’s,” said Lauren Bussey from the Northumbria University. Moreover, the study also maintained that the Rosemary aroma drastically augmented attentiveness. Whereas, Lavender distinctly boosts coolness and comfort in elders. In addition, almonds, walnuts, spinach, blueberries, fish, sunflower seeds, grains and green vegetables are also known to enhance remembrance, advance thinking power and boost up brain performance.
