One of the easiest herbs to grow, rosemary can be a healthy addition to your garden or kitchen. If you give your rosemary plant some love, air and sunlight, it will give you leaves that are high in antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential oils and even a nice, fragrant smell. Rosemary is also known for its hair growth stimulating powers - mix 1 part rosemary with 2 parts almond oil and rub the mixture onto your scalp. It smells great and will help your hair grow in fuller and thicker.

Selection Process

Fresh rosemary should be a dark, rich, greenish blue color and should have a piney aroma. This will have a higher nutrient content than dried versions. Store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag. If buying dried rosemary, look for organic sources that are green in color and also have a piney aroma.
