Home medicinal plants


Houseplants

Many of us are addicted to the cultivation of domestic plants. Of course, it is pleasant to admire the beauty of a green oasis at home after a working day. But you can combine business with pleasure. I have often heard about the healing properties of some indoor plants. And I thought, why not try to grow a "green pharmacy" on your windowsill? Especially, most domestic medicinal plants do not require complex maintenance... So let's figure out which houseplants can help us stay healthy.

Most Common Household Medicinal Plants

Aloe

Most of us are familiar with this houseplant. My grandmother called him an agave. Do you know why? Old people said that if you use the healing properties of aloe correctly, you can live up to a hundred years.

Why is aloe so good? It has many properties that are beneficial to health - anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antibacterial, choleretic, anti-burn. Aloe juice increases the protective functions of the body, enhances regeneration processes in damaged tissues, normalizes digestion, and improves appetite. Aloe is used to treat gastritis, gastric ulcer, bronchial asthma, pharyngitis, wounds, abscesses and many other diseases.

Caring for aloe is very simple. It tolerates drought and heat well.

Kalanchoe

Another home doctor who is often referred to as home ginseng. For a long time I have grown this plant without thinking about its usefulness, but simply because it is very unpretentious to care for.

However, you need to use the healing power of the Kalanchoe. Kalanchoe juice helps in the treatment of periodontal disease, stomatitis, sinusitis, gynecological diseases. Often the juice is used in the treatment of skin diseases - trophic ulcers, purulent wounds, erysipelas, bedsores.

Geranium

Not so long ago, it was impossible to imagine a house without a pot of geranium. This house plant is also medicinal. And it's all about geraniol, the active component of geranium. Thanks to him, the plant has antiviral and antibacterial activity.

Here's what I learned about the medicinal properties of geraniums. This house plant is used in the treatment of gout, rheumatism, bronchitis, gastritis, internal and external bleeding. But that's not all. They say that if you have a pot of geraniums in your bedroom, you will forget about insomnia, depression, neuroses.

The ease of caring for geraniums will be a pleasant bonus for its owner.

Myrtle

Once I read that in the old days travelers took myrtle wine with them on their way. It had tonic properties, giving strength for long journeys. Even the very name "myrtle" is translated from ancient Greek as "balm".

Myrtle is effectively used in the treatment of pneumonia, bronchitis, tracheitis, laryngitis. In the room where it is located, the total number of pathogens is reduced. This helps to increase human immunity to acute respiratory infections, influenza, relieve bronchospasm.

Myrtle does not require complex care, the main thing is that it receives a sufficient amount of sunlight. Read more ...

Agave

This domestic medicinal plant came to us from Mexico. I liked the unusual appearance of the agave. Moreover, caring for her is very simple - a lot of light and rare watering.

I was surprised to learn how useful this plant is. Agave is successfully used in the treatment of the gallbladder, gastrointestinal diseases, diseases of the lungs, mammary glands, furunculosis, rheumatism, radiculitis. Its juice has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic, expectorant effects.

Houseplants can not only decorate our home, but also help maintain health for those who live in it. With just a little time, work, and you will always have your own "green ambulance" at your fingertips.

Medicinal herbs in the garden

Previously, collecting the gifts of nature, including herbs, could be safely anywhere just outside the settlement. Now the soil is so polluted by man that one has to climb into the deep jungle in search of pure mushrooms, berries, grasses, where no man's foot has set foot. Or grow them in your garden.

Medicinal herbs are not necessarily inconspicuous and undersized, among them there are tall ones with beautiful flowers, for example, fireweed or lavender, so that a beautiful flower bed can be made from herbs for treatment.
