Why We Use Indian Herbs

In Ayurveda, the word for herbs is interchangeable with the one for plants: the two mean essentially the same thing. Ancient Ayurveda textbooks list detailed information for the herbs used in each recipe, such as their optimal environments, cultivation methods, and harvest times. In many old Indian villages where herbs were grown, the village elder would decide where and when to harvest them, and harvesters would be accompanied by a caste* with special training. Traditionally, only men of nobility were allowed by be harvesters, and they were required to spend several days fasting beforehand as a form of prayer to the gods.
If these measures seem extreme, it’s only because the potency of medicine made from these herbs depended greatly on the herbs’ quality. Unlike herbs grown scientifically, those found in the wild vary greatly in quality depending on their environment. Thus, the goal of harvesting was always to acquire the best quality herbs at the best possible time. This wisdom was gained through hundreds of years of trials and experiences by constantly seeking to make full use of the properties the herbs possessed. Even today, two herbs of the same type can be very different depending on when and where they were grown.


*Caste: India’s social hierarchy system. In Ayurveda’s case, it was passed on only among people capable of joining the Brahmans, India’s priesthood and highest social class.
