About Herbal Cyprus

This site explores home growing, harvesting and uses of plants and herbs in Cyprus.  It doesn’t matter if you have a garden, a large plot or just a veranda, try it out, it’s good for your soul!

OK so that’s not the main reason,  fact is we simply cannot survive without plants.  They are our major source of food and a centric material in shelter, clothing and fuel.  Even the air we breathe depends on plants.  What a tree breathes out, we breath in and vice versa:  Oxygen for Carbon Dioxide.  When the water we use goes back into the environment, plants are able to seek it out and access it through their roots.

The process of photosynthesis is something incredible.  We cannot compare it to anything man made, we can’t even come close.  Plants actually transform sunlight into food and, through eating plants, we gain access to the sun’s light energy.

The therapeutic value too can be high, people gain inspiration from their beauty alone, but many plants can be used for healing.

These  simple exchanges show the importance of our  relationships with plants.

Herbalists recommend: ‘Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food’.  We think they might be on to something there!

At Herbal Cyprus we urge you to include herbs in your daily diet.  You can actively maintain your health and vitality while producing amazing flavours and aromas in your kitchen.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
