Herbs
Webster’s dictionary defines a herb as, “A plant or plant part valued for its medicinal, savoury, or aromatic qualities”.

Throughout history, herbs have been used to heal wounds, cure ailments, relieve pain, and build & strengthen bodies. Even before recorded history, man has used plants for their healing properties. Some years ago in the Austrian Alps, a Stone Age “Iceman” was found frozen in ice. Scientists discovered that he carried with him a small “first aid kit” of 2 small pieces of birch fungus. To this day, birch fungus is still used to stop bleeding and disinfect wounds.

There are many methods in which herbs are used: as flavour for cooking, tea infusions, and topical applications (such as massage oils and skin lotions).

There is a general belief that herbs, because they are natural, are safe to use. However, this is not always the case. Always consult a licensed practitioner whenever you are planning to go on any herbal remedy or tonics.
