Rosemary is a favorite herb in my garden but it’s for more than just a way to flavor your food.
You can use fresh rosemary-infused oil on your salads as a delicious dressing. The herb itself has a thousand uses, and it extremely hardy and therefore easy to grow and maintain whether inside or out. The therapeutic uses of high-quality rosemary oil has analgesic, antibacterial, anticancer, anti-fungal, anti-infection, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and expectorant properties.
