Rosemary is a wonderful herb . ..

Rosemary is a wonderful herb . ..
Did you know that rosemary has been associated with memory enhancement since ancient times? 
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” 
“How can an aroma enhance memory?” 
Rosemary is a herb which we normally use in the kitchen but it has also been used as herbal medicines even during the ancient times.
It has been called the herb of remembrance from the Elizabethan Era to the Early Romantic Period.
Recent studies have proven that indeed rosemary can enhance ones memory and this could be due to the eucalyptol found in the aroma of the herb.
Rosemary oil aroma enters the bloodstream and it travels to the brain and act on memory systems.
