The creatures in the forest called the quiet and inconspicuous little herb Herbee… because they always see her playing with her best friend Mr. Bee. Herbee is not native to this forest; her forefathers were accidentally introduced here as seeds by humans many generations ago. The humans have long moved to other land, so this is how Herbee got here, according the centuries old tamarind tree that towers beside little Herbee. No wonder Herbee has a special affinity to humans; she is a domesticated plant living in the midst of a wild forest.
Herbee, was a “minor” member in the plant world. She does not have the longetivity of the tamarind tree, the majesty of the hardwoods, the resilience of the bamboos, the beauty of the orchids, the strength of the climbing vines, or the edible goodness of the fruiting trees. But Herbee, like many other native herbs that live in the forest, had a gift, a very special gift. Within their flowers, seeds, leaves, or roots are unique natural molecules that cure many illnesses in the animal kingdom – they are what humans call medicinal herbs. From animal to man, carnivore to herbivore, tree-dweller to ground dweller, those who knew how to harness the power of medicinal herbs are rewarded with the gift of health and healing.read more>>
