Herbs the way of life……..

“We have finally started to notice that there is real curative value in local herbs and remedies. In fact, we are also becoming aware that there are little or no side effects to most natural remedies, and that they are often more effective than Western medicine”

What is a Herb?

A herb is a plant that is known and revered for flavour and it’s medicinal qualities other than its food value. Herbs are used in cooking, as medicines and for spiritual purposes.

Having researched and realised the immesnse value of herbs for cooking, flavour, medicinal and spritual uses in our system of life, DEEKSHA has initiated a programme to revive the legacy of Herbal plants and herbs that have been a part of our Indian tradition since ages. We have been:

  • Working to make the masses aware of the uses and benefits of herbal plants.
  • Provide good quality herbal plants.

As a result of our endeavours, many Corporate Offices, Government Offices, Schools, Colleges, Individuals besides the Resident Societies have joined hands with us in order to make this thought of reviving the legacy of Herbalism a reality. A number of herbal plants have beneficial uses for human race. For instance - there are herbs for treating fever, cold, cough and many more issues too.

Over the past many years we have supplied high quality, organically grown and well nurtured herbal plants to individuals, schools and various organisations. Besides potted herbal plants, we have created many Herbal Gardens to date and many are ready for completion.

We all should know the importance of all the herbs available around us. We must always remember that understanding of herbs is just one of the many types of wisdom that our ancestors had. We should keep them alive for future generations.

“If one consults enough herbals...every sickness known to humanity will be listed as being cured by sage"
- Varro Taylor

If you would like to have herbs or herbal gardens at your home/office/school or organisation, please contact us.

It would be far more beneficial for organisations, both corporate and government, to gift their employee’s herbal potted plants instead of sweets/chocolates as gifts on occasions because when you gift herbal plants – you gift life to your priceless employees/colleagues. For bulk orders and enquiries contact us by filling and mailing the form below or you may call us at the telephone numbers listed alongside.

A few of the herbal plants are listed below along with their uses for your reference.
