In use for more than 7,000 years, it is so revered that wars have been fought over the lands in which it grows. But, despite its popularity in the east, it wasn’t until the 9th century that it finally reached areas of Europe. Even longer still, it didn’t reach the Americas for 9 more centuries. By the early 1800s, it had finally risen to the prominence many believed it deserved and it still one of the most commonly sought medicinal herbs on the planet.
