Rosemary is a perennially green and highly perfumed shrub from the Mediterranean region. It grows wild on the garrigues and the sun-drenched chalky hillsides. Rosemary has been used since ancient Egypt. The Greeks and the Romans honored the plant. For them, it was sacred to Aphrodite/Venus and was worn by humans and gods as adornment. From the Middle Ages, it has been grown in gardens as much as a remedy as an aromatic herb. Rosemary oil contains odiferous substances e.g. pinene, limone, cineol, p-cymen, camphor, borneol, bornyl-acetate, verbenol, carnol acid, carnosol, rosmanol and tricyclic diterpene phenols. Phytosterols and triterpene compounds are also found in rosemary oil. Rosemary is highly treasured due to its antibacterial effect. Its wound healing, antiseptic and tonifying effects made rosemary oil a popular medicinal plant, centuries ago. Rosemary oil is said to help in massage preparations to relieve cramp and tense muscles and on inflammable skin changes and dandruff.
