What do you know about your rosemary????
Hey here's a little bit of a "brain refresher" for you... What can rosemary do for you???
Apparently, rosemary is one of those miracle plants. Placing rosemary, honey, and hot water together (making a rosemary tea), helps to naturally relieve Headaches. Also in the Middle ages, rosemary was believed to help you improve your memory. Which would explain the reasons why rosemary was placed on graves for remembrance, and also would explain why Ophelia (from Shakespeare's Hamlet) said, "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance."
It is also good to place fresh rosemary in boiled water, and have a towel hanging over the back of your head, so that you can take in the steam. This helps your pores get rid of excess dirt. Also, fresh rosemary and hot water can be used as a rinse (through your hair) to help prevent dandruff.
Even though rosemary is so convent, large quanities of it, because it may cause seizures in otherwise healthy adults or children, if over dosed. Rosemary in culinary or therapeutic doses is generally safe, however precaution is necessary for those displaying allergic reaction, or those prone to epileptic seizure.
