Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, and in some cases spiritual usage.

General usage of the term "herb" differs between culinary herbs and medicinal herbs. In
medicinal or spiritual use any of the parts of the plant might be considered "herbs", including
leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, resin, root bark, inner bark (and cambium), berries and
sometimes the pericarp or other portions of the plant.
The word "herb" is pronounced /ˈɜrb/ by most North American speakers and in some dialects
in the UK, or /ˈhɜrb/ by some North American speakers and in all other English-speaking
countries.
