Garden Guy: Medicinal herbs you can grow 

Looking for herbs that can help with indigestion, stress, anxiety, sunburns and headaches to name a few. There are many herbs that you can grow on your own that can help relieve some of those and for centuries, our ancestors have used herbs as a source of vitamins and medicines in healing ailments. In fact, herbs as still used to a great extent in Europe and Asia. Herbs are not a high fertilizer consumer and if you plant them in pots make sure to flush the salts out of the pot every time you water with a good soaking of the plant every 1 to 2 weeks. This is a matter of watering until you see moisture running out of the holes in the bottom. For example, basil, many people don't know that basil can help with lack of appetite, cuts and scrapes. Feeling stressed: the scent from lavender has shown to calm and help you feel relaxed. It also eases pain and when applied to cuts and bruises functions as an antiseptic. If you have digestion or gas, peppermint is your go to herb, drinking tea made with this herb can provide relief and also helps soothe headaches. Marigold is good for sunburns, acne and blemishes and also helps sooth ulcers and digestive problems. Others to look at are the ever so popular chamomile, Echinacea, lemon balm and parsley.
