Rosemary has a long history of use in food, medicine and sacred traditions. The early use of this herb was not in essential oil form but was as a whole herb which was burned in religious ceremony as an anti-microbial and sacred incense. In the old days considerations of sanitation was much different than today and the burning of rosemary and other cleansing herbs was a way to prevent illness and provide a beautiful aromatic atmosphere. Rosemary was burned in the middle ages to prevent the spread of the plague and other illness. The essential oil of rosemary will have a more potent antimicrobial effect then the whole herb and thus we can get the same effect by using a few drops of rosemary essential oil in an aromatherapy diffuser. The herb of rosemary is still used in culinary arts worldwide and as a digestive and stimulant.
