The first mention of this medicinal plant was found in the documents of Persian doctors around 900 A.D. The Ancient Greeks also quickly learned that the young, bittersweet dandelion leaves not only tasted delicious, but also contained numerous bitter and important substances.
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.
The peel of the fruit of the lemon tree, which originates from India, is similarly aromatic to the refreshingly sour flesh of the fruit. The rind also contains up to ten times more vitamins than the juice, including both valuable essential oils and other plant-based compounds.
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.
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.
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.
Lemon myrtle grows almost exclusively in the Australian state of Queensland. The Aborigines discovered their significance as a medicinal plant long ago, and picked the intensively scented leaves to make tea and oil. Lemon myrtle has a powerful citrus taste and contains important essential oils.
First discovered in 1696 and presumably a coincidental result of water mint and wild mint, peppermint is one of the most important medicinal plants in the world. Peppermint has a slightly sharp taste and is adored around the world for its refreshing aroma and nutritious properties. In 2004 it was selected as Medicinal Plant of the Year.
