Rosemary is thought to have originated from the Mediterranean. It is one of the oldest known herbs and is referred to in the early Saxon herbal, the “Leech Book of Bald”.
There are perhaps more mystical and sacred legends surrounding this herb than any other. Rosemary was believed by the ancients to strengthen the memory, hence the saying “rosemary for remembrance”. This herb goes into the making of high-quality shampoos and herb tonics, the oil from the plant having a stimulating action on the hair roots.
Rosemary tea is a good remedy for headaches and ingestion. The viral, pungent flavor of rosemary, either fresh or dried, gives a delicious fragrance to food. A whole sprig may be used to flavor roast or boiled meat, but when mixing rosemary into food, always chop or crumble the spiky leaves first.
User rosemary in liver pate, pea soup, spinach soup, casseroles, and stews, with boiled or roast lamb, veal, pork, and beef, in white sauce with boiled onions, in many Italian and Greek dishes, and in biscuits.
