The Magical Benefits of Teas, Herbs, Spices, and Botanicals

The pursuit of health, wellness, and longevity is leading many individuals away from the big box stores, supermarkets, and other chain stores. Those routes have been followed and have been found wanting. They have found that the answer lies in the purity and power of natural products. 

Before the Industrial Age, organic botanicals, herbal teas, herbs, and spices were commodities more valuable than gold. Over the centuries, wars were even fought over them. The fact is that many of the herbs, spices, roots, leaves and other substances that are commonly used as seasonings in cooking also have quite positive health impacts. These items and other natural treasures can be found at our herb shop in Salem, MA.

They unlock the benefits of pure products that are free from the taint of modern preservatives and production methods. Chemicals and colors often add nothing good to products that are made to be consumed, and over the course of time, ingesting such materials can even prove harmful. The items we offer at Artemisia Botanicalscan be used as the basis for healthy living.

 Not only do we offer botanicals and herbs for daily use, but we also carry a full range of ritual supplies for those who follow their own paths through life. We believe that having unfettered access to the products you need to complete your rituals is a freedom that shouldn’t be taken lightly. That is why we fulfill the needs of all our customers with products of the highest level of quality.

If you are looking for sabbat celebration supplies, we can help you meet those needs. Our fully stocked inventory includes everything you require to mark those particular days. 

Many herbs, spices, and other organic botanicals found at any good herb shop are rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols have antioxidant capacities that neutralize harmful free radicals and have also been shown to have cardiovascular and anti-inflammatory benefits. Some studies show that many spices and herbs may also have anti-microbial properties that can help protect against certain fungi and bacteria growth.

Here are just two of the many magical benefits of teas, herbs, spices, and botanicals. Chatting with our knowledgeable herb shop staff will uncover hundreds more:

The Mint Family

Mints include herbs used to flavor sweet as well as savory dishes; sweet ones include peppermint and spearmint, commonly found in iced teas, candy, chewing gum, and other desserts. Savory mints include oregano and basil, which are the backbone of Italian and Greek cooking. Any reputable herb shop will carry all of these. Members of the mint family are also among the oldest medicinal herbs and were used to treat illnesses as long as 10,000 years ago.

Licorice

Licorice is actually a legume related to beans and peas! Dried licorice root is a popular flavoring in candy, tea, gum, and root beer and is a main ingredient in the Greek liqueur ouzo. Licorice has been traditionally used for its expectorant properties. The boiled root is found in some Chinese dishes and is chewed in Mediterranean countries as a breath freshener.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stay well, Stay sane,

Teri

What Customers Have to Say About Us

One of our many happy customers wrote to us, saying, “I always LOVE the smell of Patchouli. It reminds me of my hippie days when I was younger. And of course, the soap is always the best of all worldwide. Thank you!”

Another satisfied customer wrote, “I have been wearing your patchouli oil since you opened your store 24 years ago! What amazes me, besides the incredible scent, is how many times I am stopped and told how good I smell and asked what the scent is. It happens on the average of once a week and by men and women alike!”
