Rosemary is believed to offer relief to ailments of the nervous system, and is rich in such anti-cancer compounds as carnosol, rosmanol and a variety of flavonoids. Additional anti-cancer substances in rosemary – cineole, geraniole and pinene – show promise in blocking tumour growth. Rosemary is highly aromatic, so be careful not to overuse it in your cooking.
