Rosemary, derived from the Latin words "ros" and "marinus," meaning "dew of the sea", is a fragrant, shrubby Mediterranean mint. It has been used since the time of the early Greeks and Romans, who believed it could strengthen memory and was often worn by scholars during examinations. In literature and folklore, rosemary is an emblem of remembrance and fidelity. The name Rosmarinus comes from the Latin "ros maris," referring to the dew-like appearance of sea spray on plants growing close to the water. Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean region, Portugal, and northwestern Spain, and is a member of the sage family Lamiaceae, which includes many other medicinal and culinary herbs. The herb has been used for various purposes throughout history, including embalming corpses in ancient Egypt, seasoning foods, and in traditional medicine as an aromatic constituent of tonics and liniments.
