Farm and garden cultivated rosemary are also widely available, but it does not match the wild variety in its scent, beautiful flowery scenery, and distinct flavor.
Both varieties, nevertheless, are loaded with essential nutrients. Rosemary leaves are rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, and B complex groups of vitamins are the most significant components.
