(TheTruthAboutCancer.com) You’ve likely used rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) in your own kitchen (or tasted it in a restaurant meal if you don’t cook). After all it is one of the most commonly used herbs worldwide for cooking. But did you know that rosemary essential oil is considered one of the most powerful essential oils in the world with a multitude of health-promoting benefits?

The name rosemary comes from the Latin words “Ros” meaning dew or mist, and “marinus” meaning sea. Wild rosemary often grows on the sea cliffs in Spain, France, Greece, and Italy. Together with lavender, basil, oregano, and a few other herbs, it is part of the mint family. While you may have a small pot of rosemary on your windowsill, it is a perennial bush that outside can grow to be five feet high. Rosemary grows best in temperate climates where the temperature doesn’t dip below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-17 degrees Celsius).
Rosemary Has Been Valued Through the Ages
Long considered to be advantageous for memory improvement, ancient Greek students wore garlands of rosemary on their heads when studying. The Greeks and Romans used rosemary as a part of almost all festivals and feasts − it was a reminder of the cycle of life and death.
