Native to the Mediterranean regions, rosemary thrives growing by the sea. After a misty morning its tiny sprigs sparkle with the dew from the air and sea.
A popular culinary addition, rosemary is also a key medicinal herb. It can help treat and prevent lung infections, support cognitive function, and calm anxiety.
Its essential oil is used as an inhalant to help soothe coughs, promote mental clarity, and refocus scattered energies. It can also be added to massage oils to ease joint and muscle pain. It is not used internally as the concentration of compounds becomes toxic.
