The #1 Question... What is this picture?

Actually that is a picture of the herb Prunella Vulgaris, and herb used to treat Herpes, that I took in Kentucky, but the image sent to me for ID is very similar. I got this question so much that I decided to write an article about it. Click Here to learn about this plant.

I do not grow, buy or sell Ginseng. I just take pictures of it. I have internet friends who will be happy to answer your questions about Ginseng. They also supply seeds and roots when available.

Herb Cures

Please do not ask me what herbs to take for your condition. I cannot prescribe herbs for your condition, or diagnose your ailment. Even if I knew every herbal cure for every condition (which I do not), herbalists are basically forbidden to prescribe herbs by the FCC and the FDA. Please use this web site and its many links as a starting place to learn about herbs, do your own research and discuss any supplements you take with your doctor. This information is not intended to diagnose, or treat any diseases.

 I study plants more than I do people, anyway. I’m more able to tell you what that plant in your back yard or woods is, and if its an herb, than to tell you about your medical condition.

Herb Picture Use

Free Picture Use

I have a site that provides some free herb pictures that anyone can use in exchange for a link back to the site. www.freeherbpictures.com . This is in response to requests for free pictures and is maintained at my own expense, so donations are much appreciated.

High Resolution Herb Pictures

I have a CD of Herb Pictures that is a great value for small businesses at https://www.altnature.com/Herbs2003 . Discounts are available for educational use.

Please take into consideration the time and expense involved in herbal photography. I cannot provide free herb pictures for everyone who asks. Payment for use of these pictures helps pay for photography and web site expenses. I am a freelance writer, web designer and photographer and so its part of making a living.

Why all the ads on the site?

It allows me to spend more time researching herbs and working on the web site, instead of trying to figure out how to pay for it!
