Rosemary Lemon Water is so refreshing and a perfect addition to any dinner table. In addition to its detox benefits, it’s stunningly beautiful in a clear carafe. If you have never tried it, it’s a herbal lemon water. The rosemary sprigs infuse the water gently without overpowering the water. Lemons enhance the overall flavor and balance out the rosemary.
Health benefits of Rosemary and Lemon
I love to drink lemon water, especially after a certain age where bloating seems a constant battle. It’s a diuretic as we know, but I like the idea that I get a tiny bit of Vitamin C in the process. The addition of Rosemary in this water, gives it a wonderfully herbal flavor. So what about Rosemary? Rosemary has been used since ancient times as a medicinal herb. My great grandmother was a midwife and from the stories I’ve been told, Rosemary was her go to antiseptic. It’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties is something to note. I understand why it was used medicinally.
I personally love Rosemary in all it’s variations. Dried and fresh, I love the flavor that it adds to food like my One Pan Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Rice. I love it in candles and room sprays, it’s just an herb that I can’t be without. I have three bushes in my yard that I tend to for use in my home.
