Rosemary has been used for its aromatic, antiseptic, mood, and memory-enhancing properties, as well as ceremonies purposes.  (2)

It has been highly regarded as an herb that can fight fatigue and enhance endurance and as a purifying herb used in cooking and cleansing the body. It is highlighted in the De Materia Medica, a book exemplifying the transfer of knowledge across centuries written by Dioscorides (50-70 C.E.), whose work is considered to have laid the foundation of modern botanical terminology.

As an herb associated with memory, in ancient Greece, the effects of rosemary were capitalized by students and scholars who wore wreaths of rosemary on their heads, hence, “herb of crowns” when having to take an exam to improve their memory and their results. It is fascinating to note this practice can still be seen today! 

This beautiful aromatic herb has played an integral part in daily life for its medicinal and cleansing properties.  “From then until now and continued from before” .

Rosemary-Lemon All-Purpose Cleaning Spray

  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • Peels of 2 lemons
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups white vinegar

In a one-quart jar, combine rosemary, lemon peels, water, and vinegar. Allow to rest 10-14 days in a cool location to allow oils to infuse.  Strain lemon peels and rosemary and transfer liquid to a spray bottle for use.
