celebrated as sacred and healing
Ros marinus means "dew of the sea" and is known as one of the oldest, most widespread and versatile medicinal plants. A truly magical herb, which is said to exert great attraction on elves and spirits of light... In ancient times, this sacred plant was consecrated to Aphrodite in purifying and ritual incense. Rosemary was also highly valued as the "incense of the poor". The Romans decorated their statues of gods with rosemary and wove the herb into the gladiators' wreaths. Benedictine monks brought it across the Alps to Germany in the Middle Ages - as protection from evil spirits for the dead and the living. And even today, rosemary branches traditionally adorn our bridal bouquets because they are a symbol of love and loyalty. Let's take advantage of the outstanding disinfecting effect of rosemary for sick rooms, as was once the case during the plague. The aromatic and preservative herb in Mediterranean dishes is well known to many of us and is an indispensable flavor enhancer. A mint family that loves sunny hillsides around the Mediterranean Sea as its home and whose essential oil is obtained by steam-distilling the herb.

Please never use essential oils pure, but only mix a few drops of them into a fatty oil so that the recommended number of drops is not exceeded. Other possible uses of an essential oil are, of course, fragrance lamps, nebulizers, diffusers or simply a handkerchief as a carrier material for room scenting, so that the oil can be absorbed through your respiratory tract. Essential oils are the potent essence of a plant, so always be aware of their potency. Essential oils are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
