Rosemary

Rosemary is originally from the Mediterranean but is now cultivated worldwide.  It is a woody perennial shrub that has silvery green needles that can be consumed.  Early on, it was used for medicinal purposes such as treating nervous system disorders and improving memory.  Rosemary is highly aromatic and its leaves are used in cooking, oils, and cosmetics to name a few.

What do I look for?
