Rosemary is a plant native to the Mediterranean that is currently grown in many areas around Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and California. Its name comes from the Latin word Rosmarinus which means Rose of the Sea. In ancient Egypt, rosemary branches were burned with incense and placed on the bodies of deceased Pharaohs to help them seek out a new and better life. The Greeks dedicated rosemary to Apollo, the god of the sun, medicine, music, poetry and prophecies. It was sacred to the Romans, who considered it a symbol of loyalty, knowledge of death, remembrance and intelligence. It was also a symbol of love and friendship. Rosemary was believed to endow the power of concentration, activating the mind and encouraging memory.
Rosemary is a plant that brings good luck and protects against negative energy.
