Rosemary is my favorite herb.

It grows year-round, stays evergreen, and covers itself with beautiful blue flowers in spring.

It is a very versatile herb.

Rosemary has been used in traditional medicine since ancient times.

But here’s a new study telling us some interesting things about rosemary.

Indeed, according to a study, smelling rosemary increases memory.

A booster for concentration

Science has discovered that rosemary contains carnosic acid.

It is this which neutralizes the damage of free radicals in the brain, but also the damage of these in the DNA.

And that’s not all!

According to a study published in the American Journal of Pharmacology, the chemical compound 1,8-cineole found in rosemary helps improve memory.

The findings even indicated that rosemary improves memory function by 75% just from the smell it gives off!

I suppose Shakespeare was right when, in “Hamlet”, he made Ophelia declare: “Here is some rosemary; it is for the memory. Please, dear love, remember me!”

Did you know that rosemary is a symbol worn during commemorations in many countries? It may not be for anything!

So why not plant a little rosemary in your garden or on your balcony?
