Humans have been using herbs for health and healing since, well… since forever. All peoples in all countries and all cultures have herbal medicines as a foundational component of their medical practices.
Herbs can be used in every day life by everyone as part of a healthy diet and the first aid kit. In the kitchen, herbs can enrich the flavour of foods, provide a boost of vitamins and minerals, assist with digestion and elimination of wastes.
In the first aid kit herbs can assist our recovery from simple ailments like colds and coughs, cuts and scratches, tension and muscle soreness, headaches and sleep disturbances…
