Discover the Amazing Uses of Herbs!

Herbs have played an important part in man's life for countless years - in his politics, romance, love, religion, health, and superstition. Some herbs were given magical properties, probably because of their medicinal uses. The early Chinese considered artemisia to have special charms. In France during the Middle Ages, babies were rubbed with artemisia juices to protect them from the cold. Ancient Greeks used sweet marjoram as a valuable tonic, and parsley as a cure for stomach ailments. Rosemary was eaten in the Middle Ages for its tranquilizing effects and as a cure-all for headaches. Other herbs with importance dating back to early times include basil, saffron, sage, savory, tarragon, and thyme.

Many hundreds of herbs are known to have medicinal qualities. Even in light of modern synthetic medicines and the many wonders they accomplish, many people are looking to herbs as a source of healing, disease prevention, and general well-being. Used correctly and wisely, herbs can provide desirable medicinal results without adverse side effects.

At eMedicinal.com, we have complied an herb database of over 2000 herbs! With every herb in our database we list its common names, the parts usually used, a description of the plants & its culture, where in the world the herb can be found, its medicinal properties, its biochemical information, and legends, myths, superstitions or stories about the herb, uses of the herb, herbal formulas that can be prepared with it and its dosages, and finally and warnings or precautiuon that should be taken with each herb.

You can either start browsing the database with the directory below or you can use our powerful search engine to find the exact information you are looking for. Also, please check out our monthly, 10 most searched for herbs on the left-side navigation. Happy herbing! ;)

NOTE: You should not substitute herbs for any prescribed medications you are taking under a physician's care. Nor should you look to herbs as a cure-all. They tend to be much milder than synthetic medications and work more slowly, but they can be a healthy part of a balanced practice of health care. Please read our Caution Disclaimer before using the herbs listed on eMedicinal.com.
