Menopausal brain fog and forgetfulness can often be more of a worry for menopausal women than physical symptoms like hot flushes.
Getting enough sleep is vital but night sweats can conspire to get in the way of this. HRT could also help.
But one surprisingly simple aid appears to be the herb rosemary.
Used for thousands of years as a memory aid, a clinical trial from last year appears to confirm its effectiveness in improving memory in children.
Add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to a tissue and inhaling deeply can help clear your mind and temporarily improve your recall.
Or, try No 1 Botanicals Rosemary Water. Though not specifically aimed at menopausal women, this water containing carefully extracted rosemary will hydrate you (even mild dehydration makes it harder to concentrate) and the rosemary should make your brain less foggy.Back
