Your medicine cabinet is essentially your personal pharmacy and the first place you run to in case of an emergency. Equipping it as much as possible is not only important but it is very beneficial for you and your family. To develop your medicine cabinet, you can’t go out and buy drugs that will match every single illness nor can you anticipate every possible problem that can occur. However, this does not mean you cannot have a well stocked medicine cabinet. You have an alternative of stocking it with important herbs that you can grow in your garden.

Two important herbs that you should not miss putting in your cabinet include chamomile and peppermint. Chamomile is probably the best thing that can happen to your skin. It smoothens out your skin and clears out sunburns faster than any cream. Chamomile can also be used as an antiseptic and antibiotic to help stop the spread of new infections and clearing existing ones. After a stressful day at work chamomile is exactly what you need to calm your nerves and reduce anxiety. It is used by many people as an antidepressant since it works faster than the conventional antidepressants. A hot cup of chamomile tea is very good for your stomach as it takes away spasms and cramps. For colds and congestion you can also make your herbal steams using chamomile. With all these benefits it should definitely make the first row in you medicine cabinet.

Peppermint on the other hand is equally as beneficial. When suffering from a bad tension headache, peppermint is your much needed remedy. All you need to do is rub a little peppermint oil on your forehead and in 15 minutes you will be well again. Just like chamomile it can be used to make herbal steams. Menthol is one of its active ingredients meaning that the steam will quickly fight off cold or congestion. With peppermint in your medicine cabinet, a stomach upset won’t be a worry since peppermint oil has got your back. Not only does it relieve your stomach upset, it also aids in digestion.

The above two are just a few of the important herbs that you can grow in your garden for medicinal purposes. However, to fully stock your medicine cabinet you will need a diverse selection of herbs as they all have different benefits.

For a list of these top herbs you will need to grow your medicine cabinet, and to find out more information about each one, visit theprairiehomstead.com here…
