Oh Rosemary. Such a versatile and staple essential oil you will want to have on hand. So what is Rosemary and what can I do with Rosemary?
Rosemary is in the labiatae family (the same as Lavender) and is a very important oil in modern aromatherapy. The name is from two Latin words meaning dew of the sea, which is fitting since it is native to the Mediterranean coast.
Rosemary has a long and rich history of medicinal, culinary, and religious uses. It was used as incense in ancient Greece and considered sacred to the ancient Romans. It was burned in hospitals and during times of illness for centuries; in modern times science has proven its antiseptic properties.
