What is the history of its use?
As early as 500BC, rosemary was used as a culinary and medicinal herb by the Greeks and Romans. Greek scholars wore garlands of rosemary in their hair during examinations to improve their memory and concentration.
In the Elizabethan era, bridal couples wore rosemary entwined in wreaths to symbolize loyalty and constancy. Shakespeare was aware of this when Ophelia says in Hamlet: “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance, pray you love, remember” Rosemary was also widely regarded as a symbol of friendship and was exchanged by close friends as a token of enduring regard and affection.
The custom of carrying rosemary at funerals to honour the dead dates back as far as ancient Egypt. Rosemary is the floral emblem of the Australian Defence Forces and is proudly worn each ANZAC Day as a symbol of remembrance.
The rosemary plant is mildly antibacterial and during the Middle Ages rosemary leaves were burned in sick chambers to freshen and purify the air.

Compounds are absorbed into the blood by inhaling the aroma. “They interact with what is called the cholinergic system, which is involved in memory,’ he added.
The herb sage is thought to protect the chemical messages which carry information in the brain and are essential to memory.
Sage has been taken to fight memory loss, usually in teas or tinctures. As far back as 1597, herbalist John Gerard wrote that ‘sage was singularly good for the head and brain and quickeneth the nerves and memory.”
