Traditional herbs

Some of the traditional herbs being sold on the sidewalk in the townships. The ladies (and men) selling the herbs will explain to you exactly what each item is, what its for and instructions how to use it. So for help with everything from a sore tummy and luck to an ingrown toe nail and fertility, the sidewalks in the township is the place to find your solution.


  1. Interesting - I believe that there is much knowledge to be found in traditional healers (and a lot of rip-offs too) ... I'm sorry that I didn't take an interest in this stuff at a younger age ...

  2. Very interesting! I'd need a good cookbook with explanations and good directions .....
