Origin and background

Rosemary is a small evergreen plant with a memorable aroma that has earned its place on the shelf of medicinal and spice plants. It has a calming effect and, when added to hot bath water, it is an excellent stress reliever. According to legend, rosemary likes to grow around the house where a woman is wearing the pants. An herb with this background will inevitably arouse interest.

Rosemary probably originates in the Mediterranean area. Today, the plant is grown in France, Spain, Russia, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Morocco, Tunisia, and the United Kingdom. In Estonia, rosemary is grown mainly as an annual plant, because it usually doesn't survive the winter.

Rosemary was well known in ancient times. It was thought to be a very good memory enhancer, so it became a symbol of fidelity and was used at weddings, funerals, and other religious ceremonies. At the wedding, a rosemary twig tied with beautiful ribbons was given to all wedding guests as a symbol of love and fidelity. It was also added to the wedding bouquet, and even the brides adorned themselves with wreaths made of rosemary. At the time, it was also believed that tapping the finger of your lover with a rosemary twig would secure mutual feelings.

Rosemary is also attributed protective properties. For example, it was thought to protect against evil spirits. Therefore, in the Middle Ages, it was customary for people to place a sprig of rosemary under a pillow to scare away demons and nightmares.

  • It is recommended to use essential oils and their blend in a diluted form. Especially for sensitive and gentle skin. This means adding a small amount of water or carrier oil before applying it to the skin. The blend can be placed, for example, in a roll-on bottle that is convenient to carry along and can be used at any convenient time.
  • Can also be added to a neutral unscented cream, lotion, or liquid soap to achieve radiant and healthy skin.
