ASK A QUESTION What is herb in Spanish meaning as basil, rosemary, thyme, etc?
Which "herb" translation in Spanish should I use to refer to basil, rosemary, thyme, etc type herb?
Hierba- An herb you can eat
Hortalisa- An herb used only for cooking
Hope that helps!
Hello Twesely, welcome to the Forum. I assume you mean the generic: "hierba" or "yerba" if it's fresh, "especias" if they're dry or powered.
On top of the SpanishDict page you'll also find a handy dictionary where you can find translations for most of the words you may need, including the names of different herbs and spices.
What's wrong with hierba? You could have looked that up by going to the dictionary tab and typing in "herb".
