Rosemary is an incredible little plant that is native to the mediterranean, but has been spread all across the world because of its incredible remedying powers. With just the right amount of water, lots of sunlight and a nice breeze to keep it thriving and happy, you can even grow this herb right in your own kitchen!
Rosemary has long been known for its incredible effects on the brain, but before we get into that, this beautiful little herb can do so much more for your body. The tea and essential oil are both packed full of vitamin C, iron, calcium, beta-carotenes and magnesium.
It does a great job at stimulating your circulatory system, helping a lot of people with low blood pressure. If you or someone you know experiences a lot of tingling in their limbs or even feel faint when they stand up too fast, then this herb may be just what they need.

Rosemary also has great levels of resemaricine, which is able to act as both a mild analgesic and antioxidant. This type of dual effect is great when helping inflammation in the body, be it either muscle or joint issues.
If you take the fresh herb and dry it, it can greatly assist your body in the digestion of starches and fats as well.
