Description: Rosemary is an evergreen shrubby herb, native to the Mediterranean which grows to a height of 2 metres. The needle like leaves are dark green in colour on the upper surface and have a downy coating making them look greyish green on the underside, they are 2-4cm in length.
The 2-lipped flowers are small and blue in colour and grow in clusters in the leaf axils and are approximately 1cm in length.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that rosemary is once used as a symbol or remembrance? In Shakespeare’s 'Hamlet', Ophelia speaks of the long-held belief in rosemary’s powers when she says "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance." Mourners at funerals would throw rosemary into the grave of the deceased to show they would always remember the person who they once were. The herb was also carried by funeral goers during the plague in the belief that the rosemary would stave off the pestilence.
Ingredients: Dried rubbed leaves of Rosmarinus officinalis.
Allergy Advice: Rosemary contains a naturally occurring source of salicylates and is best avoided by people eating a salicylate free diet.
