Healing Herbs and Spices

20130829-082651.jpg

Going through Pinterest I came across this photo. What do you think?

Do you cook with herbs and spices? Have you used them for other things besides cooking? I know I will drink mint tea if I have an upset stomach, but I notice the chart says to try basil. This seems like an interesting task.

This has me thinking, could herbs and spices really help with ailments? Looks like I have some research to do. It would be nice to see which items that we have in our pantry can help us obtain a healthy lifestyle.

Have you tried any of these? Got some tips to share? Feel free to comment and let me know!!
