Here you will find a variety of herbal information. Simply
scroll through or use the Quick Find and enjoy the site. There is
a search feature in which you can search the entire site for anything you
like and if it finds anything matching it will let you know where it is.
There is also a herbal forum for discussion of various herbal issues.
Just be aware that I am not a natropath or doctor nor do I claim to be
either so any advice or ideas on this site should be used as a guide only.
You should always consult your doctor if you plan to use herbs for medicinal
uses. Don't think herbs are 100% harmless if misused though the ones
I use in my cooking etc are generally harmless (unless you take an excessive
amount of course). I use herbs mostly for flavouring so I can freely
talk about that. I hope you find this site enjoyable, once again
feel free to contact me with any comments and or problems you may have.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the site...

My favourite herbs
I have always liked herbs and have been using
them for many years now. I mainly use them in cooking and herbal
teas but herbs can be used in a variety of ways. I grew up to 80
varieties at one stage before I moved around a bit and unfortunately lost
the ability to have a garden. I still grow a few in pots on the balcony
etc but nothing will ever replace the garden I once had.
All herbs have a use and each one is good
in its own unique way I do however have my favourites. My favourite
herbs for making teas are definately Chamomile, Jasmine, Mint, Lemon Balm
and Lemon Grass. My favourites for flavouring are Tarragon and Basil
although I use many others on a regular basis as well. Basically
I use herbs for flavouring but I am also aware of the various aromatic
qualities in some herbs. Some of these qualities can be used to help
in ailments particularly colds. I find pennyroyal and Menthol Mint (a mint
that smells like menthol) to be helpful against colds. Mind you I
still take mainstream medicine if needed but herb can assist your bodies
natural healing abilities.
