HERBS & SPICES - Lembas Bulk

Herbes de Provence (Provencal herbs) is a mixture of dried herbs from Provence invented in the 1970s. The mixture typically contains savoury, fennel, basil, thyme, and lavender flowers and other herbs. Some cooks maintain that lavender is an essential ingredient of true herbes de provence. The proportions vary by manufacturer. Thyme usually dominates the taste produced by the herb mixture. This herb combination captures the flavours of the sunny South of France. Herbes de Provence are used to flavour grilled foods, as well as vegetable stews. The mixture can be added to foods before or during cooking or mixed with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavour into the cooked food. They are rarely added after cooking is complete.

The genus Hibiscus comprises plants also commonly called hibiscus and less widely known as rosemallow or jamaica. The large genus of about 200 to 220 species of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae (the mallow family, along with members like cacao, cotton, okra, baobab and durian) native to warm, temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, and woody shrubs and small trees. In Indonesia, hibiscus is used in the manufacture of Tempeh. The tempeh master always uses dried tempeh starter, making it by placing a handful of cooked and inoculated soybeans between two hibiscus leaves, allowing them to incubate for a few days until the soybeans are covered with black spores and finally drying them in the sun. They use this starter by rubbing the hibiscus leaves above the soybeans to be inoculated. This type of tempeh starter can easily be contaminated with other molds or bacteria. However, the climatic conditions in Indonesia are so ideal for tempeh fermentation that this type of contamination is not known to cause problems. Hibiscus forms the basis of a traditional Eastern remedy and researchers suggest an extract from the flower could have the same health benefits for the heart as red wine and tea.

Junipers are coniferous plants in the genus Juniperus of the cypress family Cupressaceae. Depending on taxonomic viewpoint, there are between 50-67 species of juniper, widely distributed throughout the northern hemisphere, from the Arctic, south to tropical Africa in the Old World, and to the mountains of Central America. Juniper Berries are primarily used to support urinary tract health. As a mild diuretic, Juniper Berries may help restore fluid balance in the body by eliminating excess water. Do not take Juniper Berry if you have kidney disease.

Kelp are large seaweed plants (algae), belonging to the brown algae and classified in the order Laminariales. There are about 30 different genera. Some species can be very long and form kelp forests. Despite their plant-like appearance, scientists group them not with the terrestrial plants (kingdom Plantae), but instead place them either in kingdom Protista or in kingdom Chromista. Kelp grows in underwater "forests" (kelp forests) in shallow oceans. It requires nutrient-rich water below about 20C (68F). It is known for its high growth rate - the genera Macrocystis and Nereocystis grow as fast as half a metre a day, ultimately reaching 30-80 m. Throughout the 19th century, the word "kelp" was closely associated with seaweeds that could be burned to obtain soda ash (primarily sodium carbonate). The seaweeds used included species from both the orders Laminariales and Fucales. The word "kelp" was also used directly to refer to these processed ashes. One of the benefits of kelp is its ability to provide important minerals such as iodine for thyroid function and iron for blood cell function. Kelp can increase metabolism and help balance blood lipid concentrations, which can help overweight people. Kelp may also be helpful in aging individuals. Osteoporosis is caused by bone deterioration due to lack of minerals, and kelp bone loss treatment can help replenish these nutrients.

The Lavenders - Lavandula - are a genus of 39 species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region south to tropical Africa and to the southeast regions of India. The genus includes annuals, herbaceous plants, subshrubs, and small shrubs. The native range extends across the Canary Islands, North and East Africa, south Europe and the Mediterranean, Arabia, and India. Because the cultivated forms are planted in gardens world-wide, they are occasionally found growing wild, as garden escapees, well beyond their natural range. Because Lavender cross-pollinates easily, however, there are countless variations within the species. Lavender flowers yield abundant nectar which yields a high-quality honey for beekeepers. Lavender monofloral honey is produced primarily in the nations around the Mediterranean, and marketed worldwide as a premium product. English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, yields an essential oil with sweet overtones, and can be used in balms, salves, perfumes, cosmetics, and topical applications. Lavandin, Lavandula x intermedia (also known as French lavender), yields a similar essential oil, but with higher levels of terpenes including camphor, which add a sharper overtone to the fragrance. In a preliminary experiment, Japanese researchers found that lavender essential oil relaxed vascular smooth muscle. They further discovered a chemical called linalyl acetate as the major ingredient to cause the relaxation effects on rabbit vascular smooth muscle. Linalyl acetate produced sustained and progressive relaxation during the contraction through partially activation of nitric oxide/cyclic guanosine monophosphate pathway, and partially MLC dephosphorylation via activating MLC phosphatase.

In traditional Chinese medicine, liquorice is commonly used in herbal formulae to "harmonise" the other ingredients in the formula and to carry the formula into all 12 of the regular meridians and to relieve a spasmodic cough. In herbalism it is used in the Hoxsey anti-cancer formula, and is an considered adaptogen which helps reregulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. It can also be used for auto-immune conditions including lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis and animal dander allergies. Liquorice root has been used for thousands years to treat a variety of aliments, including coughs, sore throats, food poisoning, and liver and stomach disorders. Indeed, this herb has been long valued as a demulcent to soothe and coat inflamed tissues of the mouth, throat, and digestive and urinary tracts. In addition to its important uses as a demulcent, the herb acts as an expectorant, which has also been long valued. Glycyrrhizin, which is the main active ingredient in licorice root acts as an expectorant by loosing and thinning mucus and phlegm from the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough up. Glycyrrhizin also harbours anti-inflammatory properties. Today, alternative health care professionals continue to use the benefits of Liquorice root to relieve respiratory ailments such as bronchitis, colds, coughs, congestion, sore throat, and allergies. In addition, it is used for stomach problems (including heartburn from reflux), inflammatory disorders, skin conditions (including eczema and psoriasis), minor skin infections, and liver problems.

The fibrous covering of Nutmegs, the blades are generally used to flavour slow cooking dishes, stock, sauces. Nutmeg and mace have similar taste qualities, nutmeg having a slightly sweeter and mace a more delicate flavour. Mace is often preferred in light dishes for the bright orange, saffron-like hue it imparts. Nutmeg is a tasty addition to cheese sauces and is best grated fresh (see nutmeg grater). Nutmeg is a traditional ingredient in mulled cider, mulled wine, and eggnog.

Marjoram (Origanum majorana, Lamiaceae) is a somewhat cold-sensitive perennial herb or undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavours. It is also called Sweet Marjoram or Knotted Marjoram and Majorana hortensis. The name marjoram (Old French majorane, Medieval Latin majorana) does not directly derive from the Latin word maior. Marjoram is indigenous to the Mediterranean area and was known to the Greeks and Romans as a symbol of happiness. Marjoram is cultivated for its aromatic leaves, either green or dry, for culinary purposes; the tops are cut as the plants begin to flower and are dried slowly in the shade. It is often used in herb combinations such as Herbes de Provence and Za'atar. The flowering leaves and tops of Marjoram are steam distilled to produce an essential oil that is yellowish in colour (darkening to brown as it ages). It has many chemical components, some of which are borneol, camphor, origanol and pinene.

Mustard seeds are the small seeds of the various mustard plants. The seeds are about 2mm in diameter, and may be coloured from yellowish white to black. They are important spices in many regional cuisines. The seeds can come from three different plants: black mustard (B. nigra), brown Indian mustard (B. juncea), and white mustard (B. hirta/Sinapis alba). It is often referred to as "eye of newt." Mustard seeds generally take 3-10 days to germinate if placed under the proper conditions, which include a cold atmosphere and relatively moist soil. Mature mustard plants grow into shrubs. Mustard grows well in temperate regions. Major producers of mustard seeds include Hungary, Great Britain, India, Canada (90%) and the United States. Brown and black mustard seeds return higher yields than their yellow counterparts. Like other Brassicas, mustard seeds contain plentiful amounts of phytonutrients called glucosinolates. The seeds also contain myrosinase enzymes that can break apart the glucosinolates into other phytonutrients called isothiocyanates. The isothiocyanates in mustard seed (and other Brassicas) have been repeatedly studied for their anti-cancer effects. In animal studies - and particularly in studies involving the gastrointestinal tract and colorectal cancer - intake of isothiocyanates has been shown to inhibit growth of existing cancer cells and to be protective against the formation of such cells.
