Origin of name
The origin of the name Rosmarinus is still uncertain: Latin ros marinus, which translates as dew of the sea is certain, others feel that it comes from sumac (rhus, a plant with a strong odor that grows near the sea). Why this reference to the sea when rosemary doesn't necessarily grow near the sea? Because the warmest locations are near the coast. Undoubtedly Officinalis: rosemary has long been a basic plant used by pharmacists in apothecaries.
"Dew of the sea" growing in the sunny shrublands in Southern France, "crowned herb" and the Greek and Romans' symbol of triumph, these dense pastel blue flower heads have been used for a wide range of applications from cooking and beneficial phytotherapeutic remedies to perfumery, in which "Eau de la Reine de Hongrie" was already considered as being a youth elixir.
