Rosemary has so many healing properties! Rosemary has been valued for hundreds of years as a memory aid. Compounds in rosemary have been found to prevent the breakdown of an important neurotransmitter (one needed for memory), and this concept is being used in new Alzheimer's medications.
Rosemary is an anti-inflammatory and can help with inflammation associated with asthma, and heart and liver disease.
Rosemary is also under scrutiny for its potential as a preventative measure against cancers. Rosemary oil has been found to prevent tumors and prevent cell mutations.
