Remembering the Rosemary

How could it be, the one herb that aids in memory slipped the growing list this year? Hopefully it is not too late to fetch a pot of Rosemary to grow in one of the colorful containers. I knew there was something missing from the meat marinades!

Although some may find this herb a bit too strong, Rosemary is said to enhance the memory by improving circulation. While there’s no guarantee that marinating your meat with a few sprigs of this herb can ward off infection or ease any muscular tension caused from long days in the garden, it is one herb not to be missing from your culinary herb patch.

For those of you who dare to dabble scientifically, blending Rosemary with cider vinegar and letting it steep for two weeks creates a Rosemary vinegar, good for rinsing your hair. My mother always swore it was the vinegar rinse that made my Aunt Elsie’s hair so shiny! And if you do add this essential oil to a bath, it is known to ‘ease muscular tension, improve circulation, and boost spirits.’

Were you absentminded this planting season, like me and forgot to plant the Rosemary? Do you need one more reason to add this herb to your garden list? Here’s perfect motive all wrapped up in this anonymous quote. "Where Rosemary flourished, the woman ruled." If I read that correctly, it sounds like a splendid way to kick off this glorious June Monday in the garden.
