Rosemary

by Herb C. Sage

 

  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) is a sacred and holy herb that contains aromatic and volatile oils. When added to juniper and myrrh produces a superior incense that drives away evil spirits and bad dreams in addition to purifying and protecting the ritual space. Rosemary leaves woven together for a head wreath represents love when used in wedding ceremonies. Its ruler is both the Sun and the Fire element.

    Rosemary tea: use one teaspoon of leaves to one quart of boiling water to boost energy, appetite, joy, memory and vitality. This tea calms nerves and relaxes muscles in addition to decreasing depression while increasing blood circulation. Use this tea as a mouthwash to strengthen gums and teeth or use this tea to rinse your hair to eliminate dandruff.

    A healing salve made from rosemary oil contracts pores in the skin and lessens rheumatic muscle pain. This salve accelerates the healing process for bruises and sprains.

    A word to the wise from Herb C. Sage — herbs are either an aid or a detriment to the healing process. Rosemary flowers kill moths.
