Spotlight On: Rosemary:

Rosemary is one of the most common herbs, and for good reasons. Rosemary has a warm, bitter and sharper taste that gives big flavor to soups, sauces, stews, roasts and stuffing. Don't waste leftovers! Use extra rosemary sprigs to make flavored olive oil. Mix it with softened butter and spread on your dinner bread. Get creative and use the sprigs as toothpicks or skewers tin your hors d' ouevres and appetizers. 

3 Reasons To Love It:

Good Mood: The aroma of rosemary alone has been linked to improving mood, clearing the mind and relieving stress. 

Breath Freshener: As a natural antibacterial; it’s great for oral health and to freshen breath. Steep rosemary leaves in a glass of hot water and then gargle or swish the water in your mouth. 

Anti-inflammatory: One of the most important functions of our fragrant friend is its anti- inflammatory agent. Rosemary is purported to be an effective treatment in oral or topical form for symptoms like high blood pressure and arthritis.
