Herbs, Herbal Remedies & Tinctures

Herbs have been used as medicines by Mankind for thousands of years

In ancient times, Egyptian Pharaohs were entombed with all they required for the after-life and this included a good selection of medicinal plants. The Greeks and Romans used herbs extensively, developing one of the earliest systems of medicine and recording the usage of many herbs. Further to the East, the Chinese developed their form of herbal medicine alongside acupuncture and the Indians worked on a system, which we now know as Ayurvedic medicine, encompassing many types of herbs.

 

In the West, herbs have been used as the starting material for many of the pharmaceutical medicines we know today. Digoxin was first used as the plant Digitalis and Aspirin was first isolated from the bark of the Willow. Despite the advances of modern healthcare and medicine, it is quite clear to many people that plant medicine, or Phytotherapy, still plays a very important part in the health of everyone today.
