The Latin name “Rosmarinus” is composed of the Greek “Rhops” (bush) and “Myrinos” (flavor). Rosemary is widespread throughout the Mediterranean and can reach up to 2 meters in dry and poor soils, especially in the thickets and undergrowth. It blooms twice a year in spring and autumn and its flowers are purple, white or pink.
It is a favorite spice of Mediterranean cuisine and one of the most widely used aromatic plants in the kitchen, as it has intense aromas and flavors for both meat and fish, salads and cheeses. It is a plant rich in homeopathic agents prescribed for asthma, arthritis, hepatitis, severe digestion, alopecia, hypotension, fatigue and rheumatism.
