Lisa's Herb Remedies

Native to the Mediterranean region, rosemary is one of the most commonly found herbs in a spice rack, and for good reason – not only does it have a wonderful taste and aroma, but also a wealth of beneficial health effects if regularly added to our diet. The scientific name of this perennial woody herb is Rosmarinus officinalis. Similar to many other useful herbs, rosemary is in the same taxonomic family as mint, but doesn’t have that characteristic flavor. It has a warmer, bitter, and more astringent taste that gives a wonderful flavor to soups, sauces, stews, roasts, and stuffing. It is particularly prevalent in Italian cultural cuisine.

Rosemary is most commonly known as a cooking herb, but it can also be used as an ornamental shrub.  There are two main types of rosemary plants, the upright varieties and the creeping varieties.  Both offer evergreen leaves, fragrant foliage and edible flowers.

  1. Gram always said “rosemary was for rememberance’ and had it planted by her door, so those coming and going would brush against it. We have it planted near out door, too, but it isn’t close enough to brush against. In my book, Star Bridge, Nimri, who is an herbal healer, has it planted next to her kitchen door. To this day, I wonder if Gram meant that the scent should be remembered or if she somehow knew that rosemary helped one’s memory… To the best of my knowledge, she didn’t know about Alzheimer’s and that rosemary would be linked to stimulating cognitive activity in the elderly as well as those suffering from other acute cognitive disorders. (For me, it will always be linked to doors.)
