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.
If you are re-evaluating your way of life, trying to regain a sense of well-being and looking to strengthen your relationship with nature, it is the perfect time to rediscover these amazing gifts. Heirloom botanicals are treasures that are inherently practical and easy to use.
Colonial Botanicals shows you how to invite heirloom botanicals into your life with small, simple steps. Browse around, share your thoughts and let’s get started improving your life.

Why so much interest in “botanicals”? Because they help people feel better. They are positive, they are beautiful, they usually smell nice, and flowers in particular just simply make people smile.
The kiss of the sun
The song of the birds
One is nearer
in a garden
than anywhere else
