Benefits of herbs (Nettles,Marigold and Mediterranean herbs)

Nettles (Urtica dioica)

 the common stinging nettle is one of the most valuable remedies. It only grows in good rich soil, it is a rich source of nutrients including iron and Vitamin C. It is also helpful in allergic complaints, especially those affecting the skin.

Marigold (Calendula officinalis)

it is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and cleansing. The petals are used in many creams and ointments to soothe irritable skin and insect bites. Make a hot infusion to add to your bath or as a tea for lymphatic conditions or fungal infections.

Mediterranean herbs

Rosemary, Thyme and Sage are all Mediterranean herbs, rich in aromatic oils. The oils are antiseptic so infusions are good for bathing wounds, gargling when you have a sore throat or using as a mouthwash to treat gum infections. Taken internally, as teas or cooking, these herbs have individual poperties. Rosemary is a stimulant particularly for the head. Try it for headaches, failing memory and falling hair. Thyme is a specific remedy for lung conditions. It also has antifungal properties. Sage  reduces body secretions so you can try it for menopausal sweats.

Yarrow

it has many medicinal uses: it may help with menstrual problems, the disorder of the blood vessels and it’s a fever herb. It is bitter to taste so it should be mixed with elderflower, peppermint or other sweet herbs.
