aromatic
In the dictionary, an "aromatic" is a fragrant plant material, used in medicine, cooking and in perfumery. The scent of these plants comes from aromatic compounds, esters, which often contain, indeed, of the active antiseptic, digestive, stimulant or simply enjoyable. We must therefore translate this definition that herbs are plants containing essential oils to strong odors and varied. Therefore, the spices are all aromatics and herbs, like thyme and bay leaf, also belong to this category. "Aromatic" is a generic term for both herbs and spices. In the kitchen, it is customary to use them as is, but in medicine and perfumery, it is preferable to extract the active ingredients and aromatic as essences.

While it has been established that the notion of spice is encompassed in the broader herb, culinary jargon continues to distinguish the two terms. The explanation is subjective in nature. Commonly known herbs known plants in our climate, those spices come from exotic regions. In addition, the word "spice" implies feelings of heat and spice.
