  1. I have always loved rosemary I am blessed to have knee high rosemary as a beautiful boarder along my walkway to my house. Just walking up the pathway and brushing against it releases the most intoxicating scent.

    In Bavaria, my home land, we use it against migraine and headaches. Brides wear a little rosemary crown not only to ward off evil and envy but for the aphorizing effect.
