Culinary herbs and spices are as essential as any ingredient, enhancing, complementing and often defining the flavors of a dish. Fresh or dried, whole or ground, judicious use of herbs and spices elevates your cooking to a new level. Some culinary herbs also have medicinal properties
Medicinal plants, also called medicinal herbs, have been discovered and used in traditional medicine practices since prehistoric times. Some believe that every herb and root has a medicinal and a magical property of some sort. They have been used for centuries by priests and shaman alike for a wide array of religious and spiritual rituals.
