Whether you use them for culinary, medicinal or beauty purposes, herbs are such an integral part of our lives that we forget their widespread historical roots, struggle for acceptance during the modern chemical age and more recent revival.

Not a day goes by when we aren't reminded about the benefits of herbal products; endless adverts for shampoos, bath products, Celebrity Chef sauces and remedies to help us sleep, to name but a few. We are all aware of Chamomile and Lavender and thanks to TV chefs such as Jamie Oliver (like him or love him) he has brought Rosemary, Basil and Coriander firmly back into the ordinary mans kitchen. People are experimenting with unusual herbs and spices and different taste sensations are being experienced up and down the country.

Life would be so dull without these wonderful plants. And where would we be without the magnificent and yet oh so common Rose? Not an herb but like so many other flowers used for perfume and of course vitamin C rich Hips used in Teas and even cough syrup. Botanically based products are everywhere. Thank goodness.

This site has been designed to bring you herbal products, by-products and accessories to purchase, up to date information and titbits and hopefully is somewhere you can spend personal time buried in the romance of herbal history. Enjoy ……
