Fresh Herbs – More Benefits Than Just Flavor

Fresh herbs are some of the easiest things to grow at home.  They add flavor to your food and beauty to your garden.  Lavender, Thyme and Basil are just a few of the herbs that can be started in your kitchen window and moved out to the garden.   Not only are fresh herbs delicious, beautiful but they can also help you feel better when you are sick.

Basil can soothe coughing and help ease anxiety.  Coriander/Cilantro aids in digestion.  Mint can relieve stuffy noses.  Oregano is a strong antioxidant.[1]  In the fall season of flus and colds, instead of loading up on over the counter meds (expensive and your body grows a tolerance to them), try supplements and fresh herbs added to your chicken soup.

Starting a small garden with flowers and herbs can add to the beauty of your space and health of your body!  For tips on growing herbs, I love the book Grow Great Grub by Gayla Trail.

About Felicia

Hello, I am Felicia and I am one of the founding members of Health Now, Wealth Forever. When we came up with the concept of starting our family business, I was enthusiastic just to spend time working on a project with my family. But, as we have grown and expanded, my passion for educating myself and others - about alternative health options and changing the way we view finances and life - has taken over. While I admit I am not the healthiest of our group, I am working on it daily and hope that the articles I write help you to work on it with me. Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to open our minds and yours to an alternative way of look at health, wealth and life!
