Ayurvedic Herb Essentials

Your kitchen pantry should have the following herbs above all else.

Rock Salt:

Rock salt is a great kitchen staple. Not only can you use it to season your food, but you may also find it useful in aiding digestion. Additionally, opposed to sea salt, rock salt does not add to water retention.

Cumin Seeds:

Another flavor booster, which can also help in digestion. But in addition to digestion, cumin seeds can also help settle feelings of nausea or vomiting.


Another delicious herb to add flavor to your cooking. Especially great for cooking sweet foods. Cardamom reduces nausea and helps prevent bad breath.


Speaking of sweets, ditch the sugar and try using cinnamon instead. Cinnamon is a great thermogenic herb that can give you the Christmas feels without the weight gain. In fact, it may promote weight loss.

In addition, there are a plethora of other herbs to spruce up your culinary spice palate. But start with these and enjoy a healthier tastier way of life.
