"Costmary has a pleasant balsam-like fragrance and though it was once used medicinally it is now rarely found in the garden or apothecary of modern herbalists. Costmary does have mild astringent properties making it a good addition to ointments, scented potpourri, and herbal baths.  Costmary leaves can be infused in teas, or used fresh in salads. The aerial parts are often dried and used in pot-pourri as it retains it scent well.  Costmary has been used to bring on delayed menstrual periods; if you are pregnant, avoid internal use." -anniesremedy.com
