Description

There are two main classes of medicinal preparations – herbal and pharmaceutical. Pharmaceutical drugs are either synthesized or refined substances. On the other hand, herbal medicine is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as labelled and final medicinal products containing parts of plants (underground or aerial), plant materials, or combinations of both, as their main active ingredient. Plant materials may come in the form of gums, juices, essential oils, fatty oils and other similar substances. Herbal drugs may also contain starch or other additives to improve the needed adhesive quality for preparing tablets or pills.

Introduction

There are two main classes of medicinal preparations - herbal and pharmaceutical. Pharmaceutical drugs are either synthesized or refined substances.
On the other hand, herbal medicine is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as labelled and final medicinal products containing parts of plants (underground or aerial), plant materials, or combinations of both, as their main active ingredient. Plant materials may come in the form of gums, juices, essential oils, fatty oils and other similar substances. Herbal drugs may also contain starch or other additives to improve the needed adhesive quality for preparing tablets or pills.
However, medicines that have plant material mixed with chemically-active substances are not considered herbal. These include drugs that contain small amounts of isolated plant constituents.
Advantages of Medicinal Plants and Herbs
In the past few decades alone, a significant resurrection in the interest revolving medicinal plants has been noticed in the field of western medicine itself. There have been various ways where modern medicine has integrated medicinal plants into the health care system. This is not surprising at all.
Given those perks, it’s clear why many have decided to start their own medicinal gardens. To be among them (and thus reap the same benefits they do), you simply have to continue reading. Chapter 1: What You Need to Know and Do before Planting and Harvesting Medicinal Herbs
Even though medicinal plants are natural , this does not imply that it is safe to use them without looking at the possible hazards. In fact, a number of the most potent plants, while being very effective and powerful, can pose some danger if not used properly. Another rookie mistake is mistaking one plant for a similar one, which can be dangerous. To keep on the safe side, here are some essential guidelines to live by when thinking about adopting a medicinal plant lifestyle:
Chapter 2: Preparing, Growing, Maintaining, and Harvesting Medicinal Plants

Medicinal plants have a lot of benefits, but they don’t just spring out of nowhere. These require a lot of work, dedication and love. To ensure that you’ll end up having healthy plants in your garden, there are some factors to keep in mind.

Preparing the Location
Not just any area of dirt or soil will do. You need to find the ideal space for the garden. Like most plants, these have unique needs - lighting, moisture, and adequate fertilizer. By giving the plants the right environment, taking care of them becomes a lot easier.


Maintaining and Protecting the Garden
After planting the seedlings, the work isn’t over yet - there are so many elements that can affect the health of the plants. The good news is that there are a lot of things that you can do to shield them from harm.

To protect the plants from the elements, here are some guidelines:
Water often, especially during droughts. Keep the soil moist to keep the plants happy. During days where there is unusually dry and hot weather, water the plants when it is cool. This way, the plants can absorb the water easier. Think: early morning before the sun has begun to heat up the soil.

Harvesting the Plants
Harvesting medicinal plants is a lot more specific than harvesting fruits and vegetables.
