Medicinal herbs have been used for centuries to heal the sick, while also maintaining health and vigour in the rest of us. As such, every kitchen garden had an extensive herb garden, which had the culinary herbs we all expect, but also had an enormous range of medicinal and healing plants.
Many of these varieties are still being used in their healing capacity today, as they have been for generations, but there are a great number that have become less popular, but are no less effective than they were centuries ago.
Lavender and Chamomile for calming, Feverfew for relieving pain and high temperatures, Houseleeks and Aloe Vera for burns, stings and skin irritations - all of these are cost effective and natural ways to aid health and well-being, while also adding to the beauty of your garden - what more could you ask for?
