history of rosemary

Hailing from the Mediterranean region, Rosemary has been used for both culinary and medicinal benefits since ancient times and venerated as a sacred plant by various cultures. The word Rosemary comes from the Latin, ros maris, which translates to “dew of the sea.” This is most likely due to the herb growing and thriving alongside its native home of the Mediterranean Sea. It also has a rich history of use in a variety of spiritual practices and ceremonies, particularly weddings and funerals as a symbol of remembrance. The ancient Egyptians would honor their loved ones by leaving sprigs of the herb on coffins or tombs. Dried Rosemary was burnt in Greek temples as an offering to the gods and goddesses and during the Middle Ages the fragrant smoke was used to ward off negative energy or malicious spirits. Ancient Greek scholars wore Rosemary wreaths around their heads during exams to promote recollection and clear thinking.
