It doesn’t matter which plants will do well in your garden. If you don’t use them for healing purposes, they won’t do the job that you needed them for. Before you choose the plants for your garden – whether you’re gardening in containers or in a fertile garden spot on your property – you need to think about your own needs.
Preparing and planting any herbs and plants is beneficial in itself because you’ll be working in dirt and getting plenty of exercise and the benefits of the fresh air. Do you need balms or ointments to help heal scraped knees and other wounds or are you more in need of teas to calm you down and/or help you sleep?
You can find an arsenal of plants to use beneficially in your healing garden. And, they usually work much better than the medicines you can purchase over the counter at the drug store. You’ll likely learn how to mix them into concoctions that can promote health in your body and give you the satisfaction of doing it yourself.
The joy in growing healing herbs and plants is that the options for concoctions are endless and don’t take a lot of space and take a lot of time and effort to grow. And, you can grow them in small spaces or containers or create a virtual farm of healing herbs.
Remember that you shouldn’t choose plants that might be difficult to grow at first. And, you need to find other ways of dealing with pests and insects other than using harsh chemicals and pesticides. You can’t heal with chemicals.
One of the great advantages of choosing the right plants for your healing garden is that you’ll be able to save money. Turning them into foods, flavors for foods and healing medicines can save you much money and on a scale that you won’t believe.
Think of any of the myriad of problems that might be solved with medicinal herbs and plants. You may not even recognize that these problems exist, nor would you seek prescription help for minor problems from your physician.
But, as you think about choosing plants for your healing harden and begin to choose plants that will help in your quest for wellness, you’ll realize that most of what you need in your life for wellness is available in herbs and plants.
Herbs and certain healing plants can interact with our body systems to provide relief and even nourishment that can help your body perform at its maximum and to help it heal itself.
