The picture above is of the herb Rosemary, which  was reputedly first grown in England by Philippa of Hainault, wife of Edward III, in the 14th century. Gerard said of the herb, 'it comforteth the harte and maketh it merie'. Grown in gardens since ancient times, it was considered to have powers of protection against evil spirits. It is an ingredient of many shampoos and hair preparations, and the leaves are one of the ingredients of eau de cologne.
Thanks to Christine's website for this information!
