Herbs and spices do not only flavour our food but have often digestible effects.
In earlier times spices were highly treasured – especially the exotic ones were as precious as gold. But also domestic herbs were esteemed during all centuries. According to their composition, ingredients of spices have an impact on our senses of taste and smell. Some spices quicken the appetite, some promote digestion, and others have relaxing or stimulating effects.
The knowledge of herbs was kept and saved in monasteries from the ancient times to the middle ages. In the late middle ages the knowledge of herbs was passed on to the pharmacists in the cities. Besides that mainly women in rural areas knew about the forces of herbs.
All herbs and spices are certified organic.

Leaf condiments are counted among spices only when they are dried – when they are fresh they are called culinary or aromatic herbs. Leaf condiments should be protected against light and stored in a cold place; besides that we suggest to keep them air tight.
