Exciting research has been done on rosemary’s potential for inhibiting cancers such as breast, colon, and skin cancers; animal studies have confirmed that the oil is liver protective, antimutagenic,and tumor inhibiting. The oil is also mildly antibiotic and antiviral. Note: although perfectly safe in amounts normally consumed in foods, in medicinal dosages it should not be used during pregnancy due to concerns that it might have uterine- and menstrual flow-stimulant effects.
