With medicinal plants and herbs you give your immune system a boost and keep your body healthy. You can simply plant these in your own garden so that you can occasionally pick some herbs for food or to make a healthy cup of tea.
But which herbs and plants all have medicinal properties? And what exactly do they do? We have compiled this list for you in collaboration with nutrition experts from the online portal Sundt.
Aloe Vera for skin problems
Aloe Vera is not only a medicinal plant, but it is also very easy to maintain, has a beautiful appearance and looks great in a rock garden. You can use Aloe Vera both internally and externally. For example, apply the nourishing substance to your skin if you suffer from dry or itchy skin, or make a tea out of it to solve stomach problems or to stimulate the appetite.
Lung herb for your lungs
Lungwort is not called that for nothing. The leaves resemble human lungs and it is used by many people for coughs, sore throats and pneumonia. Lungwort can also be used to prevent excessive sweating when you are sick. The pink or purple-blue flowers also look beautiful in your garden in spring.
