Rosemary edible?

you can use the leaves in breads and cakes and other cooking but not too much.Also you can use it as a disenfectant or if you out it the oven after baking (oven off) it will act as a freshner to the whole house or in a bowl of hot water.It likes a dry site and protect from very cold weather.
