with controls (Moss et al 2003). Further support comes from an observational study in 40 adults where 3 minutes' exposure to rosemary essential oil was seen to decrease frontal alpha and beta power, suggesting increased alertness.

A small, case series of 10 subjects also found that rosemary essential oil had positive effects on mood concentration and memory (Svoboda et al 2002).
