Rosemary Leaf

$3.13

A zesty and bold herb with an uplifting, camphor-like aroma, rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is famous for its culinary prowess and has a long history of traditional uses spanning millennia. The name rosemary has its roots in the Latin phrase, ros marinus, meaning “dew of the sea”. Rosemary leaves have a history of use in traditional Western herbalism for their beneficial properties, including supporting overall cognitive health. Additionally, rosemary has been used as a support for the daily functioning of the digestive system, and as incense in religious ceremonies.

Rosemary is a very chemically complex plant, and one that is loaded with antioxidants. Most antioxidants support a healthy inflammatory response, and so this seems to be the case with Rosemary. Rosmarinic acid, carnosic acid, and labiatic acid, all constituents of the rosemary plant are commonly used as a natural preservative in the food industry. Rosemary also encourages healthy digestion and supports liver health. Because of its potent antioxidant properties, Rosemary and its various constituents have been the focus of numerous scientific studies and clinical trials. Rosemary Leaf is high in essential nutrients, such as iron, calcium and Vitamin B-6 as well as several antioxidant compounds.

Dried bulk Rosemary Leaf is often used as an infusion for herbal tea.
