By Elsevier Science. The history of herbs and spices is as long as the history of mankind. People have used these plants since earliest times. No other commodity has played a more pivotal role in the development of modern civilization as spices.
The lives of people and plants are more entwined than is often realized. Some herbs have the power to change our physiological functioning, they have revolutionized medicine, created fortunes for those who grow, process and treat them, and in many cases have assumed social and religious significance.
Herbs have changed the course of history and in economic terms have greater importance as ingredients in food and medicine, perfumery, cosmetics and garden plants.
The knowledge of herbs has been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years Brown, Wars have been fought and lands conquered for the sake of these plants. Even today we continue to depend on herbs and spices for many of our newest medicines, chemicals and flavours and they are used in culinary preparations, perfumery and cosmetics. Many medicinal herbs are also food, oil and fibre plants and have always been grown for a range of purposes Parry, ; Rosengarten, ; Andi et al.
In the most generally accepted sense, herbs are plants valued for their medicinal and aromatic properties and are often grown and harvested for these unique properties. Some of the earliest of herb gardens were planted about years ago in Egypt. Herb growing was often associated with temples, which required herbs and sacred flowers for daily worship and rituals. Both horticulture and botany began with the study of herbs.
The earliest gardens were herb gardens. The present-day concept of a herb garden has developed largely from ancient Egyptian, Christian and Islamic traditions. In most parts of the world, herbs are grown mainly as field crops or on a small scale as a catch-crop among vegetables and ornamentals as they were thousands of years ago.
The cultivation requirements of some of the most important herbs are given in Table 1. Herbs and spices have tremendous importance in the way we live, as ingredients in food, alcoholic beverages, medicine, perfumery, cosmetics, colouring and also as garden plants. Spices and herbs are used in foods to impart flavour, pungency and colour.
They also have antioxidant, antimicrobial, pharmaceutical and nutritional properties. In addition to the known direct effects, the use of these plants can also lead to complex secondary effects such as salt and sugar reduction, improvement of texture and prevention of food spoilage. They are also used to make food and confectionery more appetizing and palatable.
Some spices, such as turmeric and paprika, are used more for imparting an attractive colour than for enhancing taste.
The major colour components of spices are given in Table 1. Because of their antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, spices have dual function — in addition to imparting flavour and taste, they play a major role in food preservation by delaying the spoilage of food.
Many herbs and spices have been used in cosmetics, perfumery and beauty and body care since ancient times. The toiletries and allied industries use spices and herbs and their fragrant oils for the manufacture of soaps, toothpastes, face packs, lotions, freshness sachets, toilet waters and hair oils.

All spices are medicinal and are used extensively in indigenous systems of medicine. Some of the important uses of major medicinal spices in Ayurveda , according to Mahindru , are given in Table 1. Extracts from herbs and spices are used as infusions, decoctions, macerations, tinctures, fluid extracts, teas, juices, syrups, poultices, compresses, oils, ointments and powders.
Many medicinal herbs used in Ayurveda have multiple bioactive principles. It is not always easy to isolate compounds and demonstrate that the efficacy can be attributed to any one of the active principles. However, the active principles and their molecular mechanism of action of some of the medicinal plants are being studied Tables 1.
Herbs and spices are rich in volatile oils, which give pleasurable aromas. In addition, herbs may contain alkaloids and glycosides, which are of greater interest to pharmacologists. Some of the main active constituents in herbs are as follows Brown, ; De Guzman and Sienonsma, :.

People all over the world have picked and uprooted herbs from the wild since ancient times. Medicinal herbs in particular have always been mainly collected from the wild and the knowledge of where they grow and the best time to gather them has formed an important oral tradition among healers of many different countries in many different cultures.
These ancient traditions successfully balance supply and demand, allowing plant stock to regenerate seasonally.

Herbs have traditionally been traded as dried products. With the advent of modern methods of preservation, frozen herbs and fresh herbs have become available but the industry remains dominated by the trade in dried products. Different methods are used to dry herbs and spices. Sun drying and shade drying are still widely used.
Freeze drying by applying a vacuum is a method that has proved to be the best method for preserving the delicate flavour and aroma of chives and leek. As sun drying destroys chlorophyll, artificially dried leaves have a better appearance and high market preference.
