Adding More Flavour to Your Health with Spices and Herbs

Herbs and spices have played an important role in many ancient civilisations and although much of the ancient lore around herbs and spices have been lost over time, what knowledge we do retain suggests medicinal purposes for many common herbs and spices.

Distinguishing between herbs and spices is pretty easy. A spice tends to be a dried seed, fruit, root or vegetative substance while herbs are leafy green plants. Even though there are herbs with different colours, you may find majority of herbs green in colour.
