I grow lavender, aloe Vera and German chamomile, rosemary lemon balm and peppermint in my medicinal herb gardens
but this year I intend on growing lemon balm, witch hazel and St.
Johns wort, thus creating a medicinal herb garden that will ease my
aches, pain, heal cuts and help me to get to sleep.
Pretty yellow flower of the St Johns Wort herb plant
lavender, chamomile, lemon balm are good for relieving stress and are
a natural sleep remedy. The Aloe Vera is good for stomach upset and
constipation when taken internally however this herb is also good for
your skin, a natural remedy for burns and when used as a moisturizer
will reduce the signs of aging. Witch hazel makes an excellent
compress for bruises and St. Johns wort is an anti-inflammatory and
is good when used as a compress for small cuts or wounds. It can also
be used to treat stomach upset and mild depression.
Rosemary in garden
grow these medicinal herbs in gardens outdoors, the Aloe Vera is
grown in my kitchen in a container. My gardens are raised beds with
organic soil. The area is sunny with partial shade in the afternoon
because my summers are too darn hot.
it comes to growing a medicinal herb garden I care for my plants by
watering in the early morning. And when it is really hot I will mist
the herb garden in the late afternoon to prevent the flowers and
leaves from wilting.
the past I have been successful in growing a variety of herbs in the
garden and I am looking forward to growing the new herbs; witch
hazel, St, Johns Wort this year.
