allergy to spices


Posted by Mary Lynn

Severly allergic to oregano & sage. Need to know if they are related to cilantro, tumeric, and cumin.

 I looked in my trusty book "The Allergy Self-Help Cookbook" by Marjorie Hurt Jones and this is what it says...

Oregano and sage are both in the mint family. Also in this family are all of the mints, basil, catnip, horehound, lavender, lemon balm, marjoram, rosemary, savory, and thyme.

Cilantro and cumin are in the parsley family.

Turmeric is in the ginger family.

I hope this helps.   :)
