Rosemary often grows wild in the Mediterranean region. In our climate it thrives quite well in the warm season in your backyard or in pots. The plant smells pleasant and intense because the narrow leaves are rich in essential oils.
The distilled essential oil is used for topical application with joint and muscle rheumatism and circulatory disorders.
Rosemary is one of the most popular herbs in our kitchen. Its fine-needled foliage has a unique, spicy aroma. This spice goes wonderfully with many Italian dishes, especially meat in all possible variations. It’s especially delicious on grilled meat. It’s best to sprinkle on top before serving, cut into small pieces. Food seasoned with rosemary is not only delicious, it is also easy to digest. A herb infused oil prepared with rosemary goes particularly well with meat dishes.
