BOTANICAL NAME: Rosmarinus Officinalis

The Ancients were well acquainted with this shrub, which had a reputation for strengthening the memory. On this account it became the emblem of fidelity for lovers. It holds a special position among herbs from the symbolism attached to it. Not only was it used at weddings, but also at funerals, for decking churches and banqueting halls at festivals, as incense in religious ceremonies, and in magical spells.

Rosemary leaves contain certain phytochemical (plant-derived) compounds that are known to have disease preventing and health promoting properties. Whether fresh or dried, the leaves are a rich source of minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, copper, and magnesium. The herb is also exceptionally rich in many B-complex groups of vitamins as well, such as folic acid, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, riboflavin.

The young tops, leaves and flowers can be made into an infusion, called Rosemary Tea, which, taken warm, is a good remedy for removing headache, colic, colds and nervous diseases, care being taken to prevent the escape of steam during its preparation.

Rosemary and Coltsfoot leaves are considered good when rubbed together and smoked for asthma and other affections of the throat and lungs.
