Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) oil was considered sacred by ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians and is one of the most powerful herbs we have. The needle-like Mediterranean herb is both anti-inflammatory and antiseptic making it a soothing treatment for many skin irritations. Rosemary is also thought to stimulate hair growth thus is an effective volumiser. A relative of mint, Rosemary imbues pungent pine and zest – an aroma that has been proven to lower stress. Often feel calm eating roast potatoes at your parent’s house? That’d be the Rosemary.
Fact drop: Rosemary was the International Herb Association Herb of The Year for 2000.
