the power of herbs

as most of you know that i am a qualified aromatherapist im fascinated with the healing elements of essential oils and if im honest i just love them at present i make my own toothwhitening products with essential oils and skin care products at present i only use them for myself but i do hope to bring them to the market soon.

so a few months ago i decided to do a diploma course in Holsitic hebalist diploma i loved everysecond of it and truly enjoyed learning how to use nature and plants/herbs to heal my body and soul.

For many centuries one trusted into the power of herbs and spices. Not surprising – since there was no modern medicine. Still today many of these tested-and-tried substances are commonly used – because they are gentle on our organism and don’t destabilise it.
The precious knowledge about the effects of different herbs has been handed down from one generation to the next and today it is highly appreciated, which is why we dedicated a different herb to every day of the week.

Oregano

Gut health is important, and oregano has been shown to protect against foodborne illnesses so much so that there’s evidence that it can effectively treat bacterial infections without the side effects of traditional antibiotics or creating antibiotic superbugs. Additionally, oregano can function as a muscle relaxant and help prevent spasms associated with IBS.  

Parsley 

More than a garnish and breath-freshener, parsley is high in vitamin A, which supports the immune system and is critical to vision. Additionally, its high levels of vitamin C can help treat a common cold and reduce hypertension. One of parsley’s prevalent chemicals, apigenin, can help inhibit the growth of cancer cell

Rosemary 

Some studies have found that rosemary can be an antidote for allergies, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. The woody herb also fights oxidative damage associated with aging, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.

Sage

Don’t limit this hardy herb to your Thanksgiving dressing—its healing powers date back centuries. Stemming from the Latin root “salvere”, which means “to save”, sage earned its name thanks to its widely accepted healing abilities. Aside from burning sage to ward off bad energy, it’s also known  to mprove brain function and memory for people of all ages, but it’s particularly helpful to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.  

Tarragon 

The anise flavor in tarragon might remind you of the flavor of some alcoholic digestifs like Sambuca and Fernet. It’s been used since ancient times to aid in digestion. You can also count on it to help promote relaxation, making it a perfect addition to a sleepytime tea blend.

Thyme

This woody herb is higher in antioxidants than any of the others on our list. Add it to your meals for a boost in your overall health, to fight signs of aging, and cancer prevention. It’s also high in antifungal and antibacterial properties, which means that it can be used as a natural food preservative, preventing the growth of yeast, mold, and viruses
