Herbs have been used since ancient times as medicine and for the overall well-being. The use of herbs dates back thousands of years and has been known throughout the ancient world.


Herbs of Kedem is a laboratory that develops natural products and seeks to renew the use of the herbs which had been used for hundreds of years


Ancient Sources


In the Roman Empire, the Land of Israel was a source of various medicinal and cosmetic balms. Notably, there are a particularly large number of medicinal plants in the Land of Israel, due to its geographical location in a junction of three continents, and due to a harsh desert climate in various regions, which requires plants to possess a large arsenal of compounds for self- protection and preservation. Israel is also in the core of a region where plants containing aromatic oils abound.


In the past, doctors or healers had prepared herbal medicines from plants which they had grown or collected themselves, or at least knew their source well, and had control on the time of harvesting and the type of storage. Such doctors avoided the use of plants which were “unidentified” with respect to their properties. They were well aware that plants of the same species may have different activities, due to different chemical compositions.


Beware of Mass Commercialism


Today, with the rising popularity of herbal medicine, an international market has developed for medicinal herbs and their extracts. These travel around the world, are stored in varying manners, and are treated chemically against pests and fungi. Moreover, commercial competition exerts pressures for economizing on raw materials costs. Herbs are frequently ordered from catalogues, without close control on the changing properties. Hence, many natural products are considered to be “complementary medicines” rather than viable solutions.


In the Herbs of Kedem, the scientists are very careful to produce herbal extracts in specific conditions.Its independent production of raw materials includes production of essential oils, and extractions in oils, water and alcohol. In either case, the highest quality is obtained by using fresh herbs, while minimizing product oxidation.


Today, essential oils are sometimes produced in large-scale industrial plants, for the perfumery and cosmetics industries. Still, some producers have preserved the careful distillation of essential oils for medicinal use. The latter distillation is typified by the emphasis on organically grown plants; on low process temperatures and pressures; and on avoiding the addition of chemical solvents or oxidation-inhibitors. In medicinal-grade oils, the contents of the oil are richer and purer.


Thus, although commercial essential oils aimed for the perfumery industries may exhibit strong odors, they are of lower medicinal value, and may even be unsafe for medicinal use.
