    It’s interesting to read that it can help with memory, I certainly need all the help I can get, do you know if the benefits are gained by consuming rosemary?

    Apparently the smell of rosemary can enhance memory and is sometimes used in tests to boost memory test results by up to 7%

    I never realised the power of rosemary on the memory, very interesting!

    In the 16Th century, rosemary was often burned in areas where the sick lay to disinfect the air and get rid of germs.
