I LOVE Rosemary!! I love it in my garden, I love it in my food and I love cutting off a branch and putting it in my car along with some lavender! The two scents together are wonderful and with two little kids, my car could use some smell help!

Two weeks ago I attended a Brain and Emotions Essential Oils seminar and learned some wonderful things about Rosemary Essential Oil! Its helps with mental fatigue and low blood sugar, it’s also a great partner with Basil in helping manage adrenal fatigue. It’s a natural steroid, antibacterial, anticancer, ant catarrhal, antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and expectorant! WOW! Who knew that such a great herb could do so much!

The Rosemary plant was regarded as sacred by many civilizations. It was used as a fumigant to help drive away evil spirits and to protect against plague and infectious illness. Its qualities have been known for hundreds of years!

Rosemary is also known as, “The Oil of Knowledge and Transition.” (Daniel MacDonald’s Book, “Emotions and Essential Oils.”) It can assist in the development of true knowledge and true intellect. It challenges you to look deeper than you normally would and ask more soul searching questions. Rosemary can also assist with those who struggle with learning disabilities.

Transitions, our lives are filled with them. Rosemary can aid during these times. Change is never easy and Rosemary can help when you are having trouble adjusting to a new house, school or relationship. It invites you to trust in a higher more intelligent power. Calms the heart and mind.

The power of Rosemary, and here I just thought I loved it for the smell and taste it added to my food! So much more now to love!
