Healing Herbs That You Can Grow

Healing Herbs That You Can Grow

IMGP1269

As we “grow along” together, I’ll share in depth some good information on my favorite individual herbs. But today I wanted to give you a quick list of my  top 10 healing herbs that you can grow yourself. I love the fact that herbs not only taste good, they’re good for you!

 

Basil:  Harmonizes the spirit, is good for breath, and helps relieve nausea.

Dill:  Build strong bones with calcium-laden dill; dill is also good for gas and allergies.

Lavender:  This calming herb is used in sleep pillows and is soothing to the skin. Apply a tiny amount directly on insect bites.

Mint:  The vitamin C in mint helps digestion,  ease coughs and sore throats; topically it relieves sore muscles.

Parsley:  This helps flush out kidney toxins, relives cramps and contains blood-building iron.

Rosemary:  High in anti-oxidants, rosemary helps prevent cancers and is good for itchy skin.

Oregano:  Lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants make this the all around medicinal herb of choice.

Sage:  Opens airways, soothes sore throats and reduces swelling when used topically.

Tarragon: Herb of the year for 2014.  Helps lower blood pressure.

Thyme:  An ingredient in medicines and toothpastes, thyme helps soothe an upset tummy.  Good for sore throats.

    Rita,
    How do you use these herbs for medical purposes. I would like to start a healing garden & know how to use them. I like to garden, this would be a fun project.
