In the Know
Legend has it that upon the advice of who we might label today as a homeless person, at age 72, 14th century Queen Elizabeth of Hungary added rosemary to her health regime to restore her youthful vitality. After consistent use of this “rosemary water” tonic, she professed a renewed vigor, and soon thereafter accepted the marriage proposal of the 26 year old king of Poland.
Today, popular with essential oil practitioners and aromatherapy enthusiasts, rosemary oil is used to treat hair and scalp issues. So if you’re seeking a potent hair tonic and not opposed to smelling like an Italian kitchen, go for the rosemary!
What Exactly is Rosemary?
If you’re into cooking, you’ll likely be familiar with the fragrant, famous ingredient rosemary. Native to the Mediterranean region, considered an evergreen shrub with needles for “leaves,” this versatile herb sprouts tiny blue, lavenderish, and white flowers. Many people plant rosemary bushes for ground covering. It’s a hearty, drought- and pest-resistant plant, that can flower all year in temperate climates. Important these days as well, rosemary shrubs attract bees.
What Does Rosemary Tea Taste Like?
Imagine traveling back in time to seaside Italy, where colorful rectangular dwellings dot the coastline. The scent of roasting lamb lingers in the air as you stroll along a pathway lush with greenery. A sweet subtle breeze washes over you, tickling your eyelashes, as it brings the calming scent of vibrant rosemary. A sense memory has been planted, an imprint you will carry with you for lifetimes to come.
