"No one knows when herbs were first collected in the wild or planted in gardens, but Egyptian records dating back to 2800 BC show herbs were being prescribed as medicine, and being used for food, cosmetics, perfumes, and dyes. Some herbs were thought to contain magical powers! Herbs were brought from the Mediterranean to the Orient and then to Europe. These herbs were then brought to the Americas."
