Dalmatian sage tea collected from the foot hills of Biokovo Nature park is an excellent tea with medical properties, for example in treating respiratory organs.

Lavender is commonly used for the lavender oil production. The lavender oil is most noted for its medical properties, and it is widely used for medical treatments. Having mild properties, it can be applied without doctor's recommendation.  It's usage is versatile.  The oil is used in the cosmetics and perfume industry, for refreshing  living space and relaxing. The lavender herb is used, of course, for decorative purposes and lately it is present in the culinary dishes.

Rosemary and bay leaf are very popular aromatic culinary herbs represented in the Dalmatian cousine, they add exquisit taste and quality to dishes.
