Herbs of The Bible

There are at least twelve herbs that are mentioned in the Bible.

I think the Christmas Season is a perfect time to ponder these.

Aloe (Aquilari agalloche) is believed to be the only tree descended to man from the Garden of Eden.

(Numbers 24:6) Like valleys that stretch afar, like gardens beside a river, like aloes that the Lord has planted, like cedar trees beside the waters.
Aloe today is a major herb in the field of Natural health and medicine.

The most well know uses are the benefits in treating burns, from small mishaps to badly burned cases, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, and any other skin inflammation.

Mixed with cucumber juice it can be used to help immune function, digestive function and conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, and Crohn's disease.

Keeping an Aloe Vera plant in your garden or a small pot in the kitchen can be a fast and helpful remedy for small bites and scrapes from everyday activities, especially if you have small children.

It's also great for a soft and healthy complexion.

The leaves can be broken and the gel applied directly to the skin.

Have a safe and happy December~

I do have a question...How many way sage can be used? I know this is a late thankgiving question, but I just purchase some turkey sausage, and one of the main ingredients was sage.

Just curious!

Thanks again,

Hi Evelyn,

It's never too late to use and learn about Sage or any herb.

Sage is wonderful in any dressing recipe.

It's wonderful in cornbread just as bread.

Toss it into chicken soup stew, good in squash and carrots.

Most herbs are very inter-changeable, just experiment until you find what fits your needs and your taste.

I certainly prefere hand rubbed sage over the ground-up stuff we find in the super-markets.

Sage is easy to grow and thrives all year.

Thanks for the question and let me know if I can be of any other help.

Thanks for the nice compliments on my blog...I'm so grateful for your interest.

Happy Holidays!
