The magical spices and herbs are all grouped into different families and not all of them have made an appearance on the show. Each family affects a different property for which the recipe is used for; for example, the spice called Carnejian affects emotions. Each spice will affect the consumer in a slightly different way depending on the amount added and what else it's added with. The following is a table of the basic families that the Protectors commonly cook with and what they affect.
There are also more families that are mentioned throughout the show, but don't make an appearance in the episodes. Romany, Atlantian and Darios are among the very few that are.
The spices and plants that Ms. Silvers grows in her garden are called Earth spices. Ms. Silvers likes to refer to them as 'Mother Nature's Gift'. Nakian and Calangute are some of the spices that Ms. Silvers has in her possession.
