My Medicinal Garden: 7 Super Plants For A Delicious Common Cold Remedy – Film #13 with Morag Gamble, Our Permaculture Life https://ourpermaculturelife.com

This 9 minute film shows how to simply make a super delicious cold remedy from easy-to-grow plants in the garden. I love that my medicine cabinet is in my kitchen garden surrounding my house and that I can just go outside and pluck fresh herbs and leaves with superb vitality to help sooth a cough and cold when I need it for me and my family.

There are so many great herbs to use in each climatic region. Here at this time of year, some great ones are:

1. lemon myrtle
2. peppermint
3. menthol mint
4. oregano
5. sacred basil
6. turmeric
7. ginger

Today, I also added organic cinnamon and some raw honey to the blend – mmmm ….delicious and very soothing. Just what I need right now.

I’ve written about the brew I made yesterday too: https://ourpermaculturelife.com/2016/09/home-grown-medicine-10-common-medicinal.html and listed a few additional plants – lemon, orange peel, lemon balm, thyme. Each brew I make is slightly different which keeps it interesting.

What is your favourite cold remedy from your garden?
