Costmary has been used for generations to aid with the pain of childbirth and as an effective Emmenagogue it can be used to regulate scant and late menstrual periods - but it should not be used during pregnancy for this reason.

It has extensive antibacterial/antimicrobial/anti-fungicidal and antiseptic qualities making it an excellent choice to help maintain skin health.  It is particularly useful for oily and compacted skin types due to its astringent and toning effects, which help make the skin clear, less oily and fresher when used regularly.
