The Memory Herb
Rosemary is the reminiscence braided in weave herb. extensions This is both a reality and a metaphor: the scent of rosemary improves retention and concentration, and its stems had been historically offered as tokens of devotion, especially between lovers who were pushed apart.
I don’t know if it works for reminiscence and focus, however I grew to become fond of its fragrance, which is both sharp and soothing. For some purpose it reminds me of rain, an odd reminiscence affiliation for an herb that thrives in dry soil, on sun baked cliffs.
In line with plant lore you need to all the time plant rosemary by the door for luck, and you need to by no means purchase the plant for your self; it’s presupposed to be received as a present, otherwise it won’t thrive.
Rosemary tea makes an amazing leave-in rinse for darkish hair, particularly when mixed with sage: it strengthens the hair’s roots, makes it easy and shiny and gives it rich highlights.
Romantic associations apart, rosemary’s predominant utility is to flavor meat, fish and poultry.
The dried model, the one that is available in spice jars, doesn’t do the plant justice, fresh rosemary is tender, fragrant, and comfortable to the contact, and its scent lingers, roused by any breath of air.
