Herbs & Spices – Source Plants
Created by


Website 1,592 participants 2,639 spottings

Herbs & spices have been used since ancient times. They have been used for cooking, as medicines, in religion, and for various other purposes. Herbs & spices have brought great wealth to civilizations and caused explorers, traders, and merchants to cross continents and oceans. As many of these items cross great distances, many people may be unfamiliar with their source plants. As part of your spotting, please include the herb or spice that comes from the plant (if it is not obvious).
