The name ‘rosemary’ derives from the Latin for ‘dew’ (ros) and ‘sea’ (marinus), or ‘dew of the sea’. Rosemary is also sometimes called ‘anthos’, from the ancient Greek word ἄνθος, meaning ‘flower’.
The plant was considered sacred to ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks and often used to symbolise love and death.
It has been used medicinally for centuries and famous Greek scientists of the day, such as Theophrastus, Dioscorides, and Hippocrates.
