The reasoning for the seasoning

I tried rosemary oil on my hairbrush to save my hair. Other than making me smell like a roasted chicken, it had no other effect. I bought tincture of rosemary from my herbalist, then left it in the bag so long I forgot why I bought it.

Ah yes...suppression of the nuclear factor-kappaB activation pathway, that's why. I hate that stupid nuclear factor-kappa B, all linked to inflammatory diseases from heart attacks to arthritis to asthma and beyond. Oddly enough, the label on the bottle says 'Breathworks,' so at least I'll have the breath of a roasted chicken whether or not it works on my knees.
