An herb that contains substances that can be used for therapeutic purposes, is considered a medicinal herb. Medicinal herbs can be used in decoctions, infusions, in food and aromatically.
If you’ve ever considered growing medicinal plants to create your own herbal remedies, I’ve created a list to help you get started.
  • Sage
  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • Echinacea
  • Thyme
  • Mullein
  • Cilantro
  • Holy Basil
  • Peppermint
  • Chamomile
  • St. John’s wort
  • Lavender
  • Ginger
  • Lemon balm
  • Ginseng
  • Turmeric
  • Rosemary
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Stevia
Choose where you’ll grow your herbs. 
•Will your garden be indoors or outside? 
•Will you plant them in a container or in the ground
Choose the herbs you want to grow.
•Why do you want an herb garden?
•What remedies do you have in mind?
•What conditions are you trying to prepare for?
•Where do you live and what herbs can handle your climate?
Prepare for your harvest.
•Do you have drying racks, dehydrators, and the other products you need to preserve your harvest?
Consulting with your care provider.
•Will the herbs you’re consuming or placing on your body interfere with any medication or preexisting condition?

Now, tell me. Do you have an herb garden or are you planning to start one? What’s in it?
