Benefits of Herbs

“Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission.”

For many centuries, countries like Iran, Egypt, China and India have been using herbs as medicine for improving mental and physical health. Persians have been known to have compiled the first records regarding herbal remedies for over 2,000 years ago. France later copied and re-wrote from what Persians knew about the effectiveness of herbal reemdies.

Here are some useful herbs that have been used for their healing and medicinal properties:


Celery Seed: Celery seeds are good for gout and arthritis. The compounds in celery seeds are powerful anti-inflammatory.

Be aware that using too much licorice can increase blood pressure and risk of heart problems and should be taken in recommended dosage.

Rosemary can also be absorbed through the skin, therefore you can rub real rosemary solution on your skin.
