Plant Description

A member of the mint family, Rosmarinus officinalis is a highly aromatic shrub that is most widely known for its use in traditional dishes like potatoes, stuffing, lamb, turkey, chicken, and more. Ancient people like the Egyptians, Romans, Hebrews, and Greeks considered rosemary to be sacred, and it was often used by healers in these early cultures. Native to Mediterranean areas, this fragrant plant produces leaves from which Rosemary oil is extracted.
