Rosemary has been used since antiquity to improve and strengthen the memory. Rosemary leaves increase circulation, reduce headaches and have anti-bacterial and fungal properties. Rosemary improves food absorption by stimulating digestion, the liver, the intestinal tract, and the gallbladder. It also is used in antiseptic gargles for sore throats and gum problems. Recent studies indicate that the oil from the leaves, normally used as a spice for flavoring, can help prevent the development of cancerous tumors.
