One doesn’t have to be an herbalist, know complicated formulas, or Chinese philosophies to enjoy the benefits that herbs can bring into your life. Begin using herbs in the simplest form; incorporate them into your cooking in increasing amounts. Put a few pinches in a pot of stew, sprinkle over a salad, toss a little in your favorite spread, make an herbal tea. Within a short time, you will have incorporated a number of different herbs into your life, and you should start feeling better naturally. Remember, not all herbs are equal. How they are grown, stored, and prepared effect their potency and usefulness. Fresh and homegrown is always best, because you know the conditions under which herbs have been planted and cared for.
When buying herbs from a store, use your sense of smell and sight. Avoid herbs that seem dusty or have a moldy aroma. Stay away from potent dried herbs in powder or capsule form. Generally speaking; they have not been tested for safety or efficacy and are usually a rip-off. Some people may have allergic reactions or other complications with specific herbs. Test sensitivities using one herb at a time. If one causes no problem, Add another.
