Tea Tuesday: Remembering Rosemary

Rosemary is a unique herb that has been used in the culinary arts for centuries.rosemary_bowl It was said to be a gift from Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, and it was used as a sign of fidelity during the middle ages. It’s also commonly used as a sign of remembrance, which isn’t surprising when you consider the benefits that Rosemary brings to the table.

Specifically, it helps you with your memory and brain function. It increases the circulation in your brain and protects your nerves from free radicals, which gives your memory a great boost. This can also decrease your chances of strokes and Alzheimers.  This is due to the special blend of acids that Rosemary contains.

Some more great benefits of Rosemary include liver support, appetite stimulant, sexual stimulant (yes, you read that right), headache reliever, and can be used as a mouthwash to combat oral bacteria. The tea can also be cooled down and used as a hair rinse to clear up that stubborn dandruff.

The are just a few of Rosemary’s amazing benefits, and it’s all because Rosemary is high in iron, vitamin E, vitamin B6, and calcium. It is suggested that you be careful with how much Rosemary you consume, and you should always ask your doctor if you’re not sure how you’ll react to the herbs. 181568388_XS
