Rosemary is not just great for flavoring food in cooking, but it's also amazing for many other reasons...
The Spanish began to call the plant Romero because they believed that another Mediterranean native took refuge beneath a large rosemary bush to shelter herself and her young son as they fled to Egypt to escape Herod. In honor of this brave, young woman, the plant came to be known as Rose of Mary, which was eventually shortened to the modern name familiar to us today.. During the Middle Ages, rosemary was thought to be capable of dispelling negativity. As such, it was tucked under pillows to thwart nightmares and visits from evil spirits. It was also burned in the house to keep the black plague from entering. http://www.herbco.com/t-rosemary-article.aspx
How Do I Use It?
Rosemary is not just a great spice, but also amazing in a lot of other areas as well. It helps to improve memory and function of brain cells. It helps with hair growth. The essential oil is excellent for putting on the feet during times of illness.
We have primarily used it either in the essential oil form or tea form. Can also make a glycerite or tincture from it. Obviously we use it in cooking as much as possible because it is just yummy!
