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.
