Rosemary clippings

I have still struggling with starting my Rosemary clippings, so a lot of what I have read says to try a rooting agent. I would like to use an orangic one. Any recommendations?

Thanks

Willow water. If I remember correctly only thing you need is some willow branches. The methods I've read about vary from simply leaving the branches in water overnight, then using the water to water your cutting, to chopping up the willow branch into small pieces and steeping them in a cheesecloth bag overnight. I don't believe you want to use hot water, though, since that may destroy useful enzymes.
