Medicinal gardening is highly beneficial for you and your family plus IT'S SO EASY, you simply must have one!We're gonna talk pro tips and our fav plants for a medicinal garden. Pro Tips: ~ Separate your medicinal garden from your vegetable garden. Medicinal plants have a tendency to take over and run a muck, and your vegetable garden probably won't like that. ;) ~ Let your medicinal garden run wild! Even my vegetable garden isn't too manicured, and there's so much beauty in it! Plus all your medicinal plants will appreciate the room to stretch out, giving you even more product. Our List of our Fav Medicinal Plants:Aloe ~ Great for insect bites, skin rashes and sunburn. Simply cut off a portion of one blade, peel away the tough exterior. Use the inside gel to spread on skin. Holy Basil ~ Lowers blood pressure and can lower blood sugars, Holy Basil is also an adaptogen.....if taken daily, helps to improve your mood and relieves stress. Harvest by snipping whole stalk about 2 leaf clusters (or nodes) down. Eat plain or put in boiling water to make tea.
