** RAW PASSION doesn’t use rosemary of any kind in any of their products and won’t in the future. Although rosemary has many great properties as well as health benefits, if you or someone you know suffers with long-term neurological issues such as epilepsy, seizures of any kind (known or unknown causes!), fits and convulsions rosemary should NOT be used topical or internal in some cases! Rosemary contains neurotoxins!
** The same applies to dogs who suffer with epilepsy/convulsions/fits. Rosemary is a neurotoxin, so beware of the many dog foods / sprays /medicines containing the herb!
