Medicinal Plants

Medicinal Plants
Plants with medicinal or healing properties originate from many different continents. Some medicinal plants have been known about for centuries while others have only been discovered as having medicinal properties by modern medicine or herbal treatments and may be better known as herbs or fruiting trees. Other medicinal plants play an important role in the search for cures for serious diseases.
Our full plant list can be found by using the a-z on the right hand menu or using the keyword search top right, if you need something specific.
