Rosemary's Health News

Time to break out that new standard, Days of Wine and Rosemary. Last week, we reported on the newest study touting the benefits of an occasional libation. Today, we learn that one of my favorite herbs has similarly beneficial effects on one's intelligence:

"Now researchers have used essential plant oils to see how much rosemary can improve brain power and mood ... Results indicated the 1,8-cineole taken into the blood through sniffing the plant improved brain performance. Those with higher levels had better speed and accuracy."

Rosemary-infused vodka, anyone?
