What is rosemary?

Rosemary is a small, fragrant, evergreen shrub that has been used for centuries to preserve meat and spice foods. It is also used by herbologists to treat specific conditions.

How has rosemary been shown helpful healthwise?

  • sniffing rosemary essential oil for 5 minutes protects the body from oxidative stress by decreasing the stress hormone cortisol, thereby reducing anxiety
  • when combined with lavender, has been shown to reduce test-taking anxiety
  • soaking in bath water for 15-20 minutes that covers hips and contains 5-10 drops of rosemary essential oil can quell drug-resistant bladder infections
  • due to its anti-proliferative and antioxidant properties, 3 cups a day of rosemary tea or up to 3 teaspoonfuls a day of dried rosemary leaves can help prevent breast and other cancers
  • protect against food poisoning when sprinkled on various foods

  • may reduce inflammation

How to use rosemary in your daily life:

  1. choose non-irradiated spices to use in your foods
  2. sprinkle rosemary in soups, stews, on poultry, on salads, mix in with rice or noodles
  3. start a herb garden in your kitchen window or outside and pick fresh rosemary or dry your own; this provides organic rosemary, a delightful smell in the kitchen, and a sense of achievement (useful as a parent-child project)
