Herbs and Their Uses

Order here>>

I would like to take a moment to share a bit of my own philosophy about herbs and their medicinal and Ancient Ways uses. 

From the time that man began using herbs to cure diseases, ease pain and enhance his surroundings with sweet smelling herbs, they seemed to have a "magical" or Ancient Ways property to them.  As man's intellect began expanding taking in the more scientific aspects of the herbal uses and remedies, the Ancient Ways/magic became medicine and still today, there is still a bit of "magic" in the medicine. 

We have all experienced the miraculous recovery from some sort of illness or dis-ease of the body and call it medicine.  I would like to give both properties of the herbs.  Some of you may not agree with it, some of you may think it is bad to present the Ancient Ways aspects of an herbal use.  I choose to simply state the properties naming neither as "good" or "bad".".

With that being said, please feel free to read, explore, chuckle or learn from the following list of herbal properties and uses, both medicinal and Ancient Ways.  Respecting both sides of the coin, for there are still today, those who follow the old ways and are quite successful in their healing arts.

This is by no means a complete listing of all the herbs and their properties.   There will always be updates to this page, as I continue researching and finding more properties to list with these herbs.  Please remember in your uses, Hypocrites' oath..."do as you will, with harm to none."
