“Where the Rosemary flourishes, the woman rules”
An old proverb that bears repeating 🙂
Rosemary is evergreen and that is an apothecary at your fingertips all year long. It does well in Atlanta and can tolerate droughts, just make sure to situate it in a well draining spot with full sun. This herb has been in our medicine chest for generations, which is why we often think of it more as a food than a medicine. The aromatics provide amazing benefits, as an antimicrobial, carminitive/digestive, stimulant, and diaphoretic.
