According to folklore Rosemary originally had white flowers; until however, they turned red after the Virgin Mary laid her cloak on the brush. Since the time of ancient Greece (1000 B.C.) Rosemary was burned as incense. Later cultures believed it warded off Devils, a practice that eventually became adopted by the sick, who then burned Rosemary to protect against infection. Rosemary may also be added to smudge sticks.
