Popular Ancient Herbs for Healing

People have used all types of herbs for centuries for various health benefits. Some of the most popular ancient herbs can be found in the Bible, for example. Many of the herbs mentioned in the Bible still are used today for both health and culinary purposes. The most common ancient herbs found in that book include the following:

#1 Aloe

The Aloe vera plant has been used for literally thousands of years to help with wounds, skin irritations, burns and even constipation. Aloe was also used in Biblical times to embalm the dead.

These days, aloe is used to reduce the pain of burns, sunburn, bruises and rashes. It also is useful as a skin moisturizer and to keep the skin looking young.

One of the most popular products with this ingredient in Asia is Beanne Extra Pearl Cream. This is a very effective skin moisturizer that contains aloe vera as well as high quality pearl powder. This keeps the skin looking younger, smoother and fresher. Many users say that it also helps to reduce dark spots on the skin. Further, many use it to reduce the appearance of freckles and pimples on the face.

#2 Anise

Many parts of this plant was used in ancient times. The leaves, seeds and stem were used for fevers. Today, anise is often used to improve digestion and also can help with flatulence. Some users find that it is helpful for both insomnia and reducing the symptoms of colds.

#3 Bitter Herbs

Bitter herbs is a general term used for horseradish, lettuce, endive and related plants. Bitter herbs were most often used in ancient times for urinary tract infections, sore joints, gout and kidney stones.

#4 Cassia Oil

Cassia oil often was used for anointing during the Biblical era. It has an aroma similar to cinnamon. Today, cassia may be used for indigestion, athlete’s foot and to improve the function of the brain.

#5 Cumin

Ancient Israelis used cumin seeds to flavor many of their foods. People today use it to improve digestion and to support the health of the heart and the urinary tract.

#6 Frankincense

This is most often used today for incense. It was used in ancient times during ceremonies and was considered to be a luxury item. Today, incense may be used to help depression and to help with sleep. Frankincense is one of the main ingredients used in incense to relieve stress.

#7 Mint

Mint has been used for many thousands of years to help to relieve pain. It has been used to help soothe the stomach and to improve digestion, and to relieve various pains in the muscles and joints.

Many modern products contain menthol, which is used in many oils and lotions today as a pain reliever. One of these is Green Oil, which contains Menthol 16%.

This product is one of the most popular in China today to relieve many aches and pains in the joints and muscles. Many users say that it is the first product they reach for to reduce pain associated with arthritis, strains and bruises.

The menthol in this product triggers a cold feeling in the skin and the flesh underneath. This boosts the blood flow to that area and can decrease pain quickly.

#8 Saffron

Saffron is one of the most expensive spices on Earth, and it also was very rare in ancient times. It has a yellow color, so it was often used to make dyes. It also was used to help with an upset stomach.

Today, many experts believe saffron can be useful to reduce allergic reactions and to reduce depressive episodes.

These ancient herbs were used for many health benefits thousands of years ago. It is interesting to see that all of these years later, many of them still are used to improve human health. We hope that you try some of these special herbs today.
