Rosemary is an evergreen shrub, widespread on the Mediterranean coast. During flowering bushes profusely cover with small blue flowers, perhaps, is why this plant gets its name — "sea dew", translated from the Latin. Rosemary is used since ancient times in Mediterranean cuisine, as well as in folk medicine as a tonic, cleansing, and anti-inflammatory agent. In the Middle Ages, rosemary was introduced to Europe, where it began to be used as an aphrodisiac to enhance sexual desire. We can recall Shakespeare's Ophelia giving Hamlet a branch of rosemary as a memento. Rosemary did not avoid modern cosmetologists attention: the essential oil and tincture of rosemary are used in creams for skin care (especially good for oily skin), in shampoos and anti-cellulite products.
