Rosemary is the most useful plant, after Lavender, of the Lamiaceae family, which has long been used in medicine and religious rituals. The use of Rosemary can be traced back to thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt, where it was used as a scared plant in tombs and was believed to strengthen memory. It was also known to the early Greeks as an "incense bush", who burnt the plant on their shrines. Today, Rosemary is mainly cultivated for marinating food and beverages. Essential oil of Rosemary is obtained by steam distillation of the silver-green, needle-shaped leaves or sometimes the flower tips only.

Since ancient times, Rosemary has been used in medical treatments for arthritis, colds, coughs, depression, diabetes, headaches, memory loss and muscle spasms. It is prescribed to lower blood cholesterol levels and strengthen people with cardiovascular weakness. Rosemary essential oil is used by British physicians to treat colic, cirrhosis of the liver, gallbladder infections, gallstones and hepatitis. Rosemary essential oil also improves digestive disorders such as colitis, gas and indigestion, as well as liver problems and jaundice.

Rosemary essential oil stimulates circulation and helps raise low blood pressure. It relieves the pain and swelling of arthritis, muscle aches and spasms, injuries and strains. It encourages cellular metabolism and assists in the drainage of lymphatic fluid.

Rosemary essential oil yields fresh, strong, woody-herbaceous, forest-like top notes and woody balsamic undertones. The aroma of Rosemary is slightly camphoraceous with a clear, penetrating and herbaceous touch. Lower quality of Rosemary oil is highly camphoraceous and possesses a rather harsh scent.

Rosemary essential oil is greatly valued for its refreshing aroma that works best in stimulating and purifying the mind. The scent of the oil is warm, penetrating and invigorating, and is believed to be an efficient aphrodisiac.
