Monthly Essentials: November

Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean area - but is widely in other parts of the world. The plant takes it's name from a Latin term meaning "sea dew." It's an evergreen shrub with small pale blue flowers. But it is the leaves and twigs that are used to draw the healing oil. Not only had Rosemary been shown to prevent aging of the brain and enhance memory -  and according to The oil is also used externally as a rubefacient and is added to liniments as a fragrant stimulant. Sometimes known as Hungary Water - used for outward application to renovate the vitality of paralyzed limbs.  It was first invented for a Saint Elisabeth, Queen of Hungary -  who was said to have been completely cured by its continued use!
