What Are Herbal Plants?
Herbal plants are defined as herbs used in cooking or for medicinal purposes. On this site I use the term to identify not only cultivated herbs but wildflower or plants that are used to provide relief against ailments and diseases, as well as in cooking.
Culinary herbs, will enchant your garden as well as your cooking. They have become a must have in every garden, and most can be grown in pots on a patio or in your kitchen. For people who cannot grow their own they are readily available in grocery stores and health food markets. Read our tips for growing them and using them. Many culinary herbs are also known for their medical properties.
Since the beginning of time we have used plants not only to nourish our bodies but to heal as well. Today phytotherapy helps us in healing little hurts and sometimes major health problems. We can use herbal plants on their own or as supplement to more traditional treatment. We should not only see herbal plants as medicinal but use them to make our foods more interesting all while we improve our health.
