Much information about herbs on our website is provided for historical background and educational purposes. According to our Native American ancestors, many of these plants have beneficial medicinal properties when used in certain ways. However, some of these plants might be harmful when used inappropriately. We provide these plants as a service to those of you who have a legitimate need for them. We know they can be really hard to find.
