For many, the time has come to plan our summer gardens. Given the overwhelming interest in recent articles about essential oils, I decided to revisit the topic of an herbal healing garden. My interest is a bit self-serving in that I am in the process of rethinking my own garden and while I grow an abundance of rosemary, lavender and peppermint, this year will be an ideal time to replace some tired shrubs with plants that will work for me. Healing herbs will fit the bill quote nicely.
Herbs have been used for centuries to sooth and to heal. According to Wikipedia:
Herbs have long been used as the basis of traditional Chinese herbal medicine, with usage dating as far back as the first century CE and before. Medicinal use of herbs in Western cultures has its roots in the Hippocratic (Greek) elemental healing system, based on a quaternary elemental healing metaphor.
With such a long history of use it makes perfect sense that you would want to include a selection of herbs in the survival garden.
