Hello, my name is Vladka and I am the person behind Simply beyond herbs.
My herbal journey started back in school when I studied pharmaceutical science and my favorite subjects were botanics and pharmacognosy. Having spent 13 years living in Dubai my exposure to herbs was limited to mint and coriander which I used to purchase at the local market. It is only when I moved to the alpine region I discovered my real passion for herbs. I started to smell them, touch them and feel them differently than before. I began to see their power when adding them to various dishes. I went back to my books to learn what I have already forgotten. Then I started to experiment with them not only in the recipes but also in natural remedies or different cocktails and immunity boosters. I also started to grow my own herbs at home which allowed me to get to know them even better.
Herbs are my passion, my centre point of nutrition and a foothold in today’s otherwise commercial and bland products. Herbs add significant nutritional value to our lives, including their unique tastes, smells and health benefits; these are the centerpieces of a good dish. It’s a lifestyle I am dedicated to pursuing; Hope you’ll join me.
Together we will learn various recipes and remedies and their impact on our health.
