Introduction
I was under the impression that the beautiful Marigold was just an ornamental flower looking great in my garden, until I found out that it was an herbaceous perennial, used in herbal medicines, natural remedies, and also in beauty recipes. So, this book is going to tell you all about the magic of marigolds, how to see them grow and flourish in your garden, and also use them in cookery, as well as in beauty recipes.
In Asia, marigolds are an integral part of social life. Every auspicious ceremony needs garlands of marigolds and jasmines to adorn the houses, photographs of the gods, goddesses, and guests who have been invited to bless the ceremony with their presence. Marigolds are originally natives of North India, Africa, and Mexico. From here, they were taken all over the civilized world by traders.
So that means you are going to see Calendula officinalis, otherwise known as garden Marigold , common Marigold and even pot Marigold , growing all in warm and temperate regions all over the globe. But a Mexican priest told me that ancient legend says the name Marigold is supposed to be in praise of the Virgin Mary – “Mary’s Gold”. Also, he told me that this flower named cempasúchil in Mexico was considered to be the sacred flower of the dead, and had to be offered during the celebration of The Day of the Dead, when people prayed to their departed near and dear ones.
In India, this flower is called Satvarga- just like the Sun.
Marigolds may bloom throughout the year, if the conditions are favorable, and the sun is warm and shining, so naturally this flower is one of the most preferred choices to use in happy celebrations, when you want to depict and praise light and sunshine.
Do you know that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and Indians used Marigold flowers as a natural dye? They also colored foods with Marigold flowers to give the dish a golden yellow tint, especially when they did not have turmeric or saffron around.
So if you want to nibble Marigolds, remember that only Pot Marigold Species T. tenuifolia florets are edible. Do not use Marigold leaves in any culinary masterpiece. Read more…

Introduction – Knowing More about Onions
Is there really Magic in onions, you may say, because according to you, onions are those sharp and pungent smelling, vegetables, which you normally do not allow within smelling distance of your nose and kitchen?
It is possible that you have been brought up with a feeling that onion and garlic – those odoriferous pungent smelling herbs are not acceptable in select circles. Did you know that the United States is the third-largest producer of onions in the world – after China and India, and followed by Egypt, Iran and Turkey.
But then there was a time when onions grew – and still grow – wild all over the lands of the USA and Canada. The Native Americans enjoyed wild onions and the Pilgrim fathers planted the onion plant first and foremost, before corn, on American soil in 1658. That was because they knew a freshly pulled out onion from their garden added this bit of piquancy to their meals.
The onions eaten by men more than 5000 years ago, according to archaeological findings may have been wild onions, but 3000 years ago, Egyptians were writing about cultivated onions and the important part this healing herb played in their food.

Egyptian workers building Khufu’s pyramids ate these onions along with horse radishes in copious quantities 3000 years ago. [Incidentally, they were not slaves. They were free Egyptians. A majority of them were farmers who were asked by Khufu and afterwards Ramses, Soser and other pharaohs to help build pyramids, during the seasons when the Nile was not in flood to help cultivate their fields. So instead of sitting idly in their fields, they glorified in taking part in the building of monuments, which would magnify the pride of Egypt, and their Pharaohs throughout the world.
There were no slave drivers with whips and lashes to make them sweat, whatever Mr. Cecil DeMille may want us to think. The diet of these farmers /pyramid workers was onions with herbs and horse radishes, bread made up of freshly ground corn and beer. They did not mind spending a part of their year building pyramids for their Kings who appreciated their hard work by allowing them grain from the nation’s granaries.]
These Egyptians knew all about the value of onions, and worshiped them as a symbol of eternal life in many circles. Ancient Egyptians had onions placed on their eyes, before embalming or mummifying and burial, so that they could enter the circle of eternal life.
With daily portions of Onions, salt and herbs Roman soldiers were happy!
Roman soldiers also included onions in their diet, especially in the evenings, when they ate onions with red cayenne peppers and the salt they got as salary for the day’s work.
In medieval times, onions were held to be so precious in many parts of the world, that landlords demanded onions as rent in lieu of coin from their tenants. Read more..add-to-cart-click-here

Preface
Herbs have been used as natural remedies to all sorts of health problems for centuries. The ancients Greeks in particular, put a lot of emphasis on the use of herbs in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions. To this day, Greek medicine is practiced by its advocates as an alternative to contemporary medicine. In fact, modern science has started to prove what the ancient herbalists used in their medicine is actually effective.
One prominent herb that has been used in medicine since millennia is rosemary. More specifically known as Rosmarinus officinalis, it is a perennial, woody herb that is characterized by sweet-smelling, needle-shaped leaves and flowers whose color may be white, blue, pink or purple. This herb originates from the Mediterranean region and belongs to the family of mint.
Although it is used frequently by many people in several roast dishes and various types of stuffing for its characteristic aroma and strong flavor, in particular, in Italian cuisine, it has an astonishing lot of health benefits, many of which have been proved by research and some which, scientists are still in the process of researching on. These health benefits concern both the human mind and body, ranging from mild health conditions to extremely severe ones.
The aim of this book is to provide you with all the information required to get acquainted with this humble yet potent herb, and how to properly include it in your daily consumption so that you can avail its benefits to the fullest. Once you have finished reading, you will realize how simple it is to take advantage of the many health benefits of rosemary.
