Since time began, herbs were both food and medicine, for both animals and humans. Herbs and their derivatives are a basis for our modern medicines, though most of us have no idea to this truth.

In the culinary area, herbs are used anywhere from teas and beverages, to spicing and adding flavor to foods. The list is to long to mention here, though some herbs are known to freshen breath while chewing, to giving us vital vitamins our body needs.

As a little introduction to history Egyptians were highly skilled with herbs. An ancient text written in 1500 B.C. of The Papyus Eben already contained over 700 herbs and remedies. Some of the herbs listed in that time were, aloe, caraway seeds, poppy and garlic.

The Chinese have used herbs for about 5000 years. There were 13 herbal prescriptions listed in a Chinese medical book in 2700 B.C. They are noted for the use of Ginseng and believe it prolongs life.

Greeks, Hypocrites used diet and herbs for treatments on himself. He was noted as the father of medical literature. He was the first to practice medicine. He firmly believed in the strength in nature to “cure” disease.

Romans, the ancient practice of Egypt was passed to Greece, then to Rome. The Mandrake herb was used then as an anesthetic. By this time, the use of herbs as remedies were common place.

Today in modern times, most consider herbs to be a food rather than medicine. However, they are complete and cleanse and purify our bodies, unlike chemical drugs. Though herbs do not cure, they do give our bodies nutrients, help realign our bodily defenses, helping it to heal itself, while putting our bodies in tune with nature.

As with Aromatherapy the oils from herbs can be used for massage, room fresheners, skin creams, baths, inhalants, relive stress and insomnia, medicinal purposes, air purification, potpourri revitalizer, and saunas. I myself use a simmering pot full of water and add a few drops of the oil, as it simmers it fills the air with its fragrance.

Shamanism, Witches, and Native American Indians, have used these herbs and their oils for anything from prayer to healing to smudging.
Smudging: Smudging helps to center ourselves. Using a smudge pot-a shell or bowl, one goes about the room clockwise, by using a fan or feather. They then fan over the smudge pot, while keeping it lit, fanning the smoke through the room. This may be done for crystals, medicine tools, to purify and cleanse ones self and to make contact with spirit.

Smudging has been known to be a powerful tool. Fighting depression, anger, resentment, clears the air after an argument, and used in rituals or ceremonies.
