IF YOU’D LIKE TO GROW YOUR OWN MEDICINAL HERBS…

Some of the best herbs to grow (or forage) for medicinal purposes are:

  • Thyme
  • Purple-flowered oregano (origanum vulgare)
  • Echinacea angustifolia
  • Calendula
  • Oats (for depression and adrenal fatigue; a 2-by-4-foot area will grow enough for a family for at least a year)
  • Alfalfa
  • Comfrey
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • John’s Wort
  • Dandelion
  • Plantain
  • Burdock
  • Nettle
  • Violet
  • Mallow (wild or marsh),
  • Elder (elderberry)
  • Purslane
  • Plantain
  • Tulsi (Indian basil or sacred basil)
  • Lemon balm
  • Mullein
  • Rugosa rose, dog rose, wild rose
  • Cayenne (It must be over 90,000 heat units)

Although not cayenne peppers, Habaneros and other hot peppers would also probably work.

About

Sustainability during a crisis is not always the doomsday picture that many imagine – such as societal collapse, every person for themselves, cities in ruin, lone survivors hiding out in the wilderness, and the zombie apocalypse.

We who serve on the Sustainable Living Teams are intent on helping other people develop the confidence and practical skills to not only survive during a serious crisis, but thrive under any challenging circumstances
