Ruzmarin - Rosemary

.
Rosemary is a native of the south of Europe and an evergreen shrub (Rosmarinus Officinalis), of the family 'Labiatae', its name meaning 'Dew of the Sea'.

As a member of the mint family it has long been used medicinally, the oil from its crushed leaves and stems, for many disorders and a tea made from the leaves was used to quieten nerves and strengthen memory. The leaves are also used in perfumery and cooking.

As early as 1584, rosemary has been used for remembrance and an emblem for particular occasions such as funerals and weddings or as a decoration for brides dating from 1601.

Shakespeare makes reference to rosemary in Hamlet (Act IV Scene 5) where Ophelia, decked with flowers, says to Laertes:
"There's rosemary, that's for remembrance".

Rosemary is a very traditional herb to use at weddings.

Rosemary is a revered ceremonial herb which symbolizes remembrance, LOVE, loyalty and fidelity. In the middle ages, rosemary was associated with wedding ceremonies.

The bride would wear a rosemary headpiece and the groom and wedding guests would all wear a sprig of rosemary. From this association with weddings, rosemary was thought to be a love charm.
