Herb Essentials for Health

Herbs are broadly defined as any plant or plant part used to promote health. They are full of flavour, low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, making them a good addition to any meal. Historically, before herbs and spices were widely used in the kitchen, they were recognized and used for their medicinal properties in ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, India, and China. Many edible flowers enhance health and are useful for their flavour too.

Herbs, edible flowers and spices offer a variety of natural, health-enhancing properties to be exploited. They guarantee a colourful, culinary adventure! If you have an underlying health condition, take medication or supplements, consult with your doctor before using herbal remedies to rule out adverse side-effects or reactions with medications and supplements.
