History The name of the oil is derived from the Latin words for dew of the sea (ros + marinus). According to folklore history, rosemary originally had white flowers, however, they turned red after the Virgin Mary laid her cloak on the bush.
Since the time of ancient Greece (about 1000 BC) rosemary was burnt as incense. Later cultures believed that it warded off evil spirits, a practice that eventually became adopted by the sick, who instead burned rosemary to protect against infection. At one time, French hospitals burned rosemary in this way to disinfect the air. Rosemary has an approximate ORAC of 3,309 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
