We just discovered a great article about food cures you can grow at home… reminding you that you can sometimes be self reliant – always a good feeling. These are some of the most popular, best herbs that have been used in home remedies since ancient times.
I am reminded of the “meme” that has been seen flying around the internet lately: “Medicine is not healthcare. Medicine is sickcare. Food is healthcare.”
These herbs not only have culinary uses but have numerous medicinal uses. To make life easier for you I have listed the nine herbs. (We also have fully-detailed pages on a number of these – so if you really want to go deep, follow those links too!) Be aware however that the original source also contains growing tips for some of the herbs, and some quick application tips.
Aloe Vera – burns, sunburn, healing the digestive tract. Not really a culinary herb per se, but the soft gel could be added to smoothies.
Basil – headaches, pain relief.
Lavender – skin conditions, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory.
Lemon Balm – cold sores, insect bites, natural insect repellent.
Peppermint – make tea with fresh peppermint leaves to ease nausea and minor digestive complaints.
Parsley – immune booster, also chew for fresh breath.
Rosemary – mood lifting, cold soothing with cinnamon.
Sage – infuse some sage leaves with boiling water, and when cooled, gargle for sore throat.
Thyme – antioxidant and antiseptic. Do not use if pregnant.
Ok here is the link to the original list: http://www.organicgardening.com/living/9-food-cures-you-can-grow-at-home
