Rosemary, Organic: Hungary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Historically the Egyptians Greeks, Hebrews, and Romans considered Rosemary as a sacred plant. It was used to protect against evil spirits, bad energies, and witchcraft. Rosemary was considered the herb for memory and love and is associated with all things dear to the heart. It was used at funerals to keep the memory of the departed alive and also used at weddings to create the timeless bond of love of the couple. Early folklore states that when the Virgin Mary placed her cloak over the Rosemary bush, it changed the color from white to red. Rosemary was also burnt in hospitals in France during epidemics.
Rosemary can have a wide range of chemotypes that are all very therapeutic. Depending on where and when the plant was harvested you may have a rosemary that is predominantly Oxides (Cineole), Monoterpenes (alpha-Pinene or Camphor), or Monoterpene Hydrocarbons (beta-Myrcene). So when using Rosemary on small children, be extra cautious if the chemotype is not known.
