Herbs have been an important component to life and health since the beginning of time. From the dawn of recorded history plants have been a primary source of medicine for people throughout the world. Plants used in medicine have been referred to as herbs for over 3000 years. Botanically a herb is a plant ,more or less soft or succulent, mostly grown from seed without developing woody tissue but some exceptions are rosemary, chaste tree, lemon verbena and a few more. Herbs and plants whether they provide luscious fruits ,nutritious roots, vegetables, leafy greens or any of the large assortment of teas we can see that they not only provide sustenance and nutrients but they also provide healing qualities.
Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, and in some cases spiritual usage. General usage of the term "herb" differs between culinary herbs and medicinal herbs. In medicinal or spiritual use any of the parts of the plant might be considered "herbs", including leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, resin, root bark, inner bark (and cambium), berries and sometimes the pericarp or other portions of the plant.
In general use, herbs are any plant used for flavouring, food, medicine, or perfume. Culinary use typically distinguishes herbs as referring to the leafy green parts of a plant (either fresh or dried), from a "spice", a product from another part of the plant (usually dried), including seeds, berries, bark, roots and fruits.
