Rediscovering Heirloom Botanicals

Any plant with a positive historical heritage may be called an “heirloom botanical”. These useful plants, especially aromatic herbs and flowers, have been prominently featured in important life situations throughout history… helping to celebrate special events, recognize accomplishments, treat ailments, console the grieving, and of course, express love and affection.

Over time, many of these wonderfully beneficial plants have been marginalized, forgotten and gradually replaced with modern, artificial alternatives. We are now realizing that many of these man-made replacements are negatively affecting our health and spirit.
