Natural Herbal Gardening and Medical Remedies

Natural herbal remedies have been around for thousands of years and have passed down from generation to generation. Many of the modern day medications that are dispensed through pharmacies today were originally created or based on natural ingredients.
Cures for many diseases and disorders are treated with common drugs like opium (from poppies) or its’ derivatives, aspirin (from willow bark), digitalis (from foxglove), and quinine (from the cinchona tree). By the end of 2004, more than a third of adults have been documented as using some form of an alternative herbal medicine.

Natural herbs can not only be beautiful but they can also be aromatic giving a wonderful aroma to your garden. Herb gardens are easily and successfully grown in a wide variety of garden planters and containers as well as in the garden. Our ancestors knew the value of fresh herbs in their diet as well as for their medicinal value. Maybe it’s time to look to our past in order to make our future a little healthier.
