Herbs! Flavorful plants used as medicine, seasoning or flavoring. They add a pinch of excitement to the art of cooking. Herbs are contained in numerous products that we use every day. Let's read some labels: mint toothpaste, shampoo with chamomile, aloe cream, cough syrup with echinacea, etc. As plant-derived or organic ingredients they can be found in hot drinks, pastries, insect repellents, and hair dyes. Because of their multiple uses and beneficial properties, they are often included in cooking, medicine, cosmetics, and gardening. Imagine how life would be if herbs did not exist. Odourless? Colourless?

It was incorporated into the diet and contained in the remedies of ancient Greeks, while it also played a major role in important social occasions such as feasts, sacrifices and athletic games.
