Adding rosemary to stews or sauces couldn't be easier - just drop in the whole sprig.
I have used Rosemary to add special seasoning to potatoes, green beans and when roasting meats. It adds delicious flavor to many dishes.
To make a natural disinfectant spray, mix a half-cup of borax into a gallon of hot water. Add a few sprigs of rosemary and let steep for ten minutes. Strain out the rosemary, let cool, and store in a spray bottle.
For a natural scouring powder, combine a half-cup each of baking soda and borax with a tablespoon of crumbled dried rosemary.
You can also use rosemary to make a hair rinse to make hair shiny. Rosemary is ideal for people who have dark hair because it brings out the highlights. It also helps with dandruff.
- Place sprig in a pitcher of water
- Pour boiling water over rosemary and let steep for 20 minutes.
- Strain the sprig out and let cool.
- Add 1 Tablespoon of vinegar
- Pour rinse over hair. Do not rinse out, dry and style as usual.
Rosemary is a very useful and versitale herb. It would be great to keep around the home or may make a great gift idea!
