Native to the Mediterranean (and brought to Britain by Roman soldiers), rosemary is a sun-loving, small, fragrant evergreen plant related to the mint family. In ancient times, students would wear sprigs of rosemary in their hair to improve memory. The Queen of Hungary bathed in rosemary water each day and was asked for her hand in marriage at the age of 75 due to her amazing beauty. Modern research reveals rosemary as a potent antioxidant rich in flavonoids. Rosemary research continues in the areas of cognition, mood, circulation, inflammation and digestive wellness.
