Rosemary, Rosemarinus officinalis, a symbol of fidelity, was used in wedding ceremonies. Its name is derived from the Latin word Rosmarinus, which means “dew of the sea”. Rosemary is very fragrant and has a mildly astringent effect on the skin. It has a long history of culinary and medicinal use.
Like many other pungent herbs, rosemary has antibacterial properties. In the days before refrigeration, herbs like rosemary, thyme, and hyssop were rubbed into fresh meat to prevent spoilage.
The uplifting scent of rosemary is believed to help headaches, mental fatigue, nervous exhaustion, and stress. It clears the mind and promotes mental clarity. It refreshes and stimulates a warm sluggish body, energizes, and regenerates.
Ground rosemary leaves provide gentle exfoliation when added to soap.
In hair care, rosemary has been used for hundreds of years to help reduce thinning hair and hair loss. It encourages hair growth and strong healthy hair by improving blood flow to the scalp. Rosemary also holds antibacterial and antifungal properties that help soothe the scalp.
A rosemary tea rinse increases manageability and adds shine and luster to the hair. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to nourish hair follicles, soothe an irritated scalp, and ease dandruff.
