Thank you for your patience as this site is undergoing some construction.
Welcome to my blog, theHERBAL Cache! My goal is to learn, share, educate and have fun, all at the same time.
With health care costs continually on the rise, learning to take care of oneself is one way to help deter some of these growing costs.
Humans have been using herbs since the beginning of time, whether as food or for medicinal purposes. Archaeological evidence shows medicinal plants being used 60,000 years ago and the first written evidence comes from the Sumerians some 5000 years ago! And humans have continued to use them through the years. But with the arrival of modern medicine, the use of natural herbs fell by the wayside. But herbalism is slowly making a comeback and people are realizing that grandma actually did know what she was talking about.
And by the way, herbs not only include those that can be found in your pantry, like oregano, basil and thyme, but also those wonderful plants some people may call weeds, like dandelion, mullein, burdock and mother's wort!
I hope you decide to join me on this wondrous journey, to explore the natural pharmacy in our backyards!
