The Herb Handbook: A Practical Guide To Using And Growing Herbs. Herb refers to any annual or perennial plant with a non-woody stem in botany. The term herb, on the other hand, has come to refer to plants that provide a specific benefit to humanity. Some consider them to be the purest form of food known to mankind. For thousands of years, humans have used herbs to flavor food and heal themselves. They’re versatile, easy to grow – in the garden or in window sill pots – and can be used fresh, dried, or frozen.
Herbs are used for a variety of purposes, including culinary, medicinal, and, in some cases, spiritual. While the green, leafy part of the plant is typically used for culinary purposes, the roots, flowers, seeds, root bark, inner bark (cambium), berries, and occasionally the pericarp or other parts of the plant are also used in herbal medicine.
When we think of herbs, we immediately think of common herbs such as Basil, Parsley, and Rosemary. However, there is a wealth of less common herbs that have a plethora of uses. We have attempted to introduce some well-known and some lesser-known herbs in this book and to discuss their properties, uses, cultivation strategies, and much more.
