Do you love rosemary?
I love rosemary for the Fall season for a myriad of reasons. It is AMAZING in soups, it's brilliant in the diffuser and it's herbaceous aroma reminds me of Fall and really good #French-onionsoup.
This common garden herb was used in ancient times to drive away evil spirits. Rosemary essential oil is the oil of knowledge and transition and this makes it the perfect companion to your natural health routine in September. Emotionally, it assists in the development of true knowledge and intellect and is particularly supportive in times of change. It provides a feeling of confidence and helps create perspective rooted in the truth of understanding (Essential Emotions, 2020).
Rosemary’s biochemistry is rich in linalool which gives it analgesic, stimulant, and neuro-protective properties. Rosemary is a personal favorite go-to with lemon for memory support, respiratory clearing, adrenal fatigue, and even jet lag (The Essential Life, 2020).
Everyone can enjoy rosemary oil in a multitude of ways ...
In place of the fresh herb in your favorite soup, bread dipper, or salad dressing recipes. 1 drop = 1 tsp of dried herb and you want to try to add the essential oil towards the end of cooking to preserve the herbaceous flavor
