Long revered by healers, the rosemary plant was regarded as sacred by many civilisations (Egyptians, Greek, Roman and Hebrew) who considered it sacred. Its slightly floral, herbaceous aroma can clear the mind and increase mental stimulation thus often used in aromatherapy. It was also widely used to cleanse the air and prevent sickness from spreading.
Native to the Mediterranean coastline, Rosemary is a shrub that grows up to six feet tall. Its name means “dew, sea” from the Latin words “ros” and “marinus” which refers to Rosemary’s spread along the sea.
