   Rosemary was part of the "Four Thieves Vinegar" used by grave-robbing bandits to protect themselves during the 15th century plaque.  The name of the herb is derived from the Latin words for 'dew of the sea' (ros + marinus).  According to folklore history, rosemary originally had white flowers; however, they turned red after the Virgin Mary laid her cloak on the bush.  Since the time of ancient Greece (about 1,000 B.C.), rosemary was burned as incense.  Later cultures believed that it warded off devils, a practice that eventually became adopted by the sick who then burned rosemary to protect against infection.
