HERBS found in the Bible

It is my belief that our Creator placed all things on the earth for a purpose, herbs being just one of them. In the Word of God there are many references to herbs and their uses. So, I am going to start a monthly share of these verses in scripture to magnify God’s importance to these gifts.

  • As with any new herb, plant or any herbal remedy always consult your healthcare provider before using, trying or taking any new herb, plant or herbal remedy or supplement. When using , planting or working with or harvesting any herb or plant proper identification is VERY important. There are many herbs, plants, trees, seeds, fruits, berries, roots and the like that are very poisonous; even deadly! “When in doubt – leave it OUT”! A Simpler Thyme ltd is NOT a healthcare facility. Julia Brown – Certified Master Herbalist is NOT a healthcare provider. Always seek a professional healthcare provider.
