Healthy and beautifully green: 5 medicinal herbs you can easily grow at home

If you are at home for many hours and you have trouble finding a hobby, herbal medicine can save you. You stay healthy while you grow gorgeous plants to use in your kitchen.

It's not a bad time for this global quarantine to initiate some positive changes in your life. Why not start creating your own little pharmacy on your balcony or even your apartment window? It is always good to have some medicinal plants to use when you need them, but it would also be good if you could grow them yourself. 

There is a long list of medicinal herbs that you can grow at home. Some can be used as teas or condiments, others just as condiments, others just as healing teas or ingredients for relaxing creams. Usually these types of plants do not need special care, but they can give you many benefits.

Here are 5 medicinal plants that you can start growing at home:

1. 1. Rosemary

Rosemary is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds

Full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, rosemary is not just a great addition to your baked potatoes. It’s great for memory and concentration and also improves digestion. Can be used in cooking or drank as a tea. Rosemary seeds take ages to germinate, so buy young plants instead. You can also use a cutting after the plant has flowered. Rosemary requires little maintenance. Keep the plant well-watered during dry seasons and cut back annually.

2. 2. Basil

Basil can be used as an infusion

Recommended for rheumatism and muscular pains. Can be used as an infusion, or for topping pasta dishes. Basil grows well in warm environments that receive about six hours of sun each day. Water the plant only when the soil is dry to touch. And try watering the base without touching the leaves. Keep in a sunny spot.

3. 3. Aloe Vera

Aloe is good for your skin

It is a magic gel that relieves pain, protects the skin, is excellent as a toothpaste and is an extraordinary antioxidant if ingested. Aloe is best kept in temperatures between 13 and 27°C (about 55 to 80°F). Water deeply but infrequently, about once every 2 weeks.

4. 4. Mint

Mint is good for circulation

Good for circulation and is a great digestive tea. Mint plants require minimal care. Water the plant regularly if grown indoors. Most will tolerate shade, and the variegated types may require some protection from direct sun.

5. 5. Parsley

Parsley is recommended for hypertension

It is especially recommended for hypertension. Keep your parsley plant near a sunny window, keep the soil lightly moist and empty the saucer under the pot after every watering. Feed the plants every two weeks. You can grow other herbs in the same container.
