Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) is a common household plant which belongs to the family Lamiaceae and is grown in many parts of the world. It is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple or blue flowers. The two most commonly grown hardy Rosemaries are Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Arp’ and R. officinalis ‘Madelene Hill’ (syn. ‘Hill Hardy’). The other cultivars of the plant are R. officinalis ‘Albus’, R. officinalis ‘Bendenen Blue’, R. officinalis ‘Goodwin Creek’, R. officinalis ‘HerbCottage’, R. officinalis ‘Logee’s Light Blue’, R. officinalis ‘Miss Jessup’s Upright’, R. officinalis ‘Russian River’, R. officinalis ‘Salem’. The Chemical constituents include bitter principle, resin, tannic acid, volatile oils and flavonoids. The volatile oil consists of bomeol, bomyl acetate, camphene, cineol, pinene and camphor. It is used for problems involved in central nervous system, cardio vascular system, genito urinary conditions, liver treatments, reproductive system and respiratory system. The volatile oil of the plant is used in oils and lotions for the treatment of various ailments like arthritis, gout, muscular pain, neuralgia, wound and rubbed into hair for stimulating the hair bulbs to renewed activity, to prevent premature baldness.
