Hey you! Just wanted to talk about one of my favourite herbs! Rosemary!
What is rosemary to me
Being Italian means growing up with the scent of rosemary everywhere and now I can’t really live without it! Every time I walk near a rosemary bush I just have to stop and admire it! It’s so amazingly fragrant, soothing and so relaxing!
I’m just in love with Rosemary, not just for the flavour it gives to the food but also for all its benefits!
When I found out that this plant has a lot different uses, especially on skincare, I got really excited to try it and so I gave it a go. Now basically most of my products are based on Rosemary. Rosemary & Skincare is one of the most beneficial things you can imagine.
Something about rosemary plant
This incredibly fragrant herb, is a small evergreen plant of mint family.
A sun-loving shrub whose scent evokes the Mediterranean, rosemary has needle-like leaves that can be picked all year round. The plant flowers in spring and summer in temperate climates, but the plants can be in constant bloom in warm climates.
The flowers of Rosemary are beautiful white, pink, purple or deep blue.
Fresh or dried leaves can be used to flavour meat, soups and many other dishes, while sprigs steeped in olive oil give it a distinctive flavour.
You don’t need an herb garden to grow rosemary. A single plant in a pot will provide you with enough rosemary to flavour your cooking and scent the kitchen. In warm climates, rosemary can be plant at any time.
The best time to plant rosemary is in spring or autumn so that it can get its roots established before dry summers or winter frosts.
