Herbal Remedies, Herbology, and Other Uses for Herbs

Chamomile tea - an herbal classic

Herbs have been used for their therapeutic purposes from time immemorial. Many modern medicines have their roots in a traditional form, and even today new medicines are coming out of traditional sources.

The category of herbal medicine is broad and usage can encompass: roots, leaves, flowers, fruits & berries, seeds, bark, needles, oils, and resin or sap. As a result, we have an array of plant-based products, including some you might not think of as being "herbal".

Remember this is not a substitute for medical advice. Where possible, we have included possible contraindications, but always consult a medical practitioner before deciding on a course of action. You should have a full review of your current state of health before putting anything into your system that may affect or interact with an unknown condition.
