The Dew of the Sea plant is universally grown and one of the most recognized in the garden. Other known names of this plant include Old Man, Rose of Mary, Polar Plant, Compass Plant and more commonly Rosemary. Rosemary received it’s Dew of the Sea name from it’s Latin origin and it originated in the Mediterranean. It received the name Rose of Mary name from early Christianity in a story regarding the Virgin Mary who reportedly spread her cloak on a white blossoming bush and the flowers of the rosemary plant turned blue.
Rosemary is a popular garden herb and culinary ingredient. It is widely known for it’s aromatic scent that draws bees and butterflies as well as adds a nice aromatic scent and taste to dishes. The plant is actually part of the evergreen family and has a continual spread of aromatic stalks with spring and summer blue flowers.
When the leaves of Rosemary are steam distilled the plant turns into a very helpful essential oil that has been used for centuries in health care, religions and wars. It was used in both wedding and funerals as a symbol of the fidelity of lovers and for remembrance of those departed. It was also used as a war commemoration and as a lesser expensive alternative for Christmas celebrations.
