Ancient Egyptians were highly skilled with herbs. The Papyrus Ebers, an ancient text written in 1500 BC, contains references to more than 700 herbal remedies, including herbs such as aloe, caraway seeds, marjoram leaves, spearmint leaves, basil leaves, hibiscus, calendula, anise seeds, parsley leaves, sunflower petals, cumin, licorice roots, chamomile seeds, dill, garlic and many others. Herbs are the plants that provide the highest quality food to man, containing vitamins, minerals and trace elements in natural balance and harmony. They have been used in ancient Egypt in many different ways and forms like in food, as a medicine, in cosmetics and in fragrances.
