Rosemary is a petite evergreen shrub, but there’s nothing small about the distinctive scent that wafts from its one-inch curved pine needles. A native of the sunny Mediterranean, rosemary is an aromatherapy star, culinary delight, and favorite ingredient in skin and hair products. Since 500 B.C., rosemary oil has been used to support overall health and wellness across cultures and traditions.

History of Rosemary
Also known as the “Dew of the Sea,” rosemary was harvested from the wild in ancient Greece and Rome and used as a symbol of fidelity and remembrance, a protector from negative energy and infection, a preserver of youth and positivity, and a healthful flavor-booster in sumptuous dishes. A beloved ingredient in cosmetics, body lotions and creams, rosemary’s uplifting, energizing aroma and multi-faceted properties have been revered for generations.
