  • A History of Herbs

    Our relationship with herbs goes back as far as the history of mankind itself. Ancient Egyptians used herbs for medicine, cosmetics, and embalming. The Greeks and Romans used them to ease pain, cure diseases, and preserve their food. Throughout the middle ages, herbal knowledge and folklore was commonplace in towns and villages. We at Timeless Herbal Traditions seek to restore and integrate that knowledge into the modern day life style.
