History & Health Benefits
Rosemary originated from the dry areas of the Mediterranean. Its uses date back to the ancient Greeks and Romans where they wear a garland made out of the herb as they believe it would help their brain memory. They were also found in ancient Egyptian tombs from 3000 BC. It was then cultivated by the Spaniards in the 13th century and became a popular condiment for meat. This outdoor plant in Manila is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. They can help aid digestion, neurological protection, and can even be anti-cancer.
This herb for sale in Manila needs at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun a day, meaning, they thrive best outdoors or near a window that has access to bright sunlight. Rosemary likes their soil well-draining, sandy, and on the dry side. They like their soil completely dried out in between waterings, so once to twice a day watering should be enough. Make sure that the water completely drains at the bottom of the pot as well.
Cut off about 2 inches of Rosemary from the top of the plant and remove the leaves at the bottom inch of the stem. You can dip the bottom part in rooting hormone before placing them in a container with a mix of perlite and peat moss. Mist them every day and don’t let the soil dry out. Once it develops roots, you can now pot them as you would with any Rosemary plant.
