Cinnamon is one of the most expensive herbs in the world and is thought to have been used in China around 3,000 B.C. as a herb and medicinal plant. Cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the cinnamon tree. It tastes aromatic and sweet, and contains nutritious tannins as well as valuable essential oils.
The name of this Mediterranean herb comes from the Latin word ‘salvare’, meaning ‘to save’. In ancient China, sage was weighed in gold due to its fresh, spicy, slightly bitter taste and important nutrients.
Liquorice has been used since ancient times for its medicinal properties and is one of the 50 basic herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is around 50 times sweeter than sugar and tastes mild, sweet, bitter and aromatic. Liquorice was selected as the Medicinal Plant of the Year in 2012 due to its valuable nutrients.
Oregano, which belongs to the labiate family, was regarded by the Ancient Greeks as an important medicinal plant. It contains a high amount of natural antioxidants, including essential oils, tannins and bitter substances. Its full-bodied, slightly bittersweet aroma makes oregano a fundamental ingredient of Mediterranean cuisine.
Cardamom has been one of the most popular spices in the Asian and Arabian regions for thousands of years. Its delicate, sweet yet sharp aroma means that it is perfect for use in numerous dishes – from spicy curries to aromatic Christmas baked goods. Thanks to its essential oils and other important nutrients, cardamom is one of the oldest healing plants in the world.
In Southeast Asia, this aromatic herb and medicinal plant is also known by the name ‘fever grass’. It contains essential oils and has a powerful, fresh citrus flavour. It is still unknown where this plant that belongs to the sweetgrass family, and is mainly used in Asian cuisine, originates from.
Ginger has been used in the Far East for more than 3,000 years as a condiment and medicinal plant. It has a fruity-tart taste and contains essential oils and important minerals as well as various vitamins.
Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree and are mainly used in our part of the world as a spice in foods such as Lebkuchen (gingerbread) or red cabbage. They belong to the Myrtaceae family and have an intense, spicy aroma, which led to them even being weighed up with gold in ancient China and Egypt.
The lemon verbena, also known as the verbena, was introduced to Europe in the 18th century. Its native home is under the sun of South America, where it has long since been treasured as an important medicinal plant. The lemon verbena belongs to the Verbenaceae family and contains important essential oils.
Black pepper, known as the ‘King of Spices’ nowadays is one of the most important spices in the world, together with salt. It originates from the Malabar coast of India and it has an intensive spicy flavour, ranging from mildly spicy to spicy. Ancient traditional medicine of Ayurveda recommends black pepper not only for its spiciness, but also for its valuable properties as a medicinal plant.
This very aromatic fenugreek grows in Morocco, India, China, Africa, Australia and even in Germany. Its name is derived from its shape, which resembles the horns of a goat. As early as the year 795, Charlemagne officially promoted the growth of fenugreek. It is reported that even the Prophet Mohammed once said: ‘If my people knew what there is in fenugreek, they would have bought and paid its weight in gold.’
In the Middle East and Asia, the gentle, sweet-tasting coriander is used in just about every dish. Firstly, because of its magnificent aroma that resembles an aromatic-spicy blend of mint, nutmeg and orange. Secondly, coriander is full of nutrients and was even referred to in the Old Testament as a medicinal plant.
