Where does Rosemary oil come from?
Refreshing and herbaceous, the pleasant, pine-like aroma of Rosemary has been used to clear the mind for thousands of years. Rosemary is a fragrant herb in the mint family, which includes many popular kitchen herbs such as basil, sage, oregano, and marjoram. Ancient Greek scholars used Rosemary because of its beneficial effects on concentration and focus. Today, the essential oil is still used to ease nervous tension and occasional fatigue.*
The Latin name for Rosemary is “dew of the sea,” and true to its name, rosemary grows wild on seashores throughout the Mediterranean. Most insects don’t like the smell of rosemary, which makes it a beneficial garden plant.
