Traditional Uses

Rosemary's long history includes use by grave-robbing bandits during the plague of the 1400's - the thieves doused themselves in 'Four Thieves Vinegar' (a mixture including Rosemary leaf, Clove, Lemon and Cinnamon) to protect themselves from infection while going about their 'business'. Folklore tells us the flowers of Rosemary were once white, and turned red forever when the Virgin Mary placed her cloak over the bush. As one of the oldest and most well known medicinal herbs, Rosemary has been used to drive away evil spirits and repel moths in clothes chests, to fumigate sick rooms, to flavor ale and wine, and to prevent the spreading of fevers. It was used to beautify, cleanse and rejuvenate skin as well as to cure gout and paralysis. In TCM, Rosemary is yang oil, and as such is warming and stimulating in both aroma and effect. Rosemary has been classically used for stimulating the mind, enhancing clarity, relieving stiffness of joints, and stimulating healthy hair growth.
