These herbs will always be at your fingertips and you will quickly be able to prepare, for example, cough medicine, a liquid that solves insomnia and nervous tension or against skin itching and skin eczema.

  1. Oregano (Latin name is Origanum vulgare) is a perennial herbaceous plant. The plant is easy to grow and only sometimes it can be demanding. It can be grown throughout the year. It is useful in cooking and for medicinal purposes. The seeds are small, so it is better to grow oregano in a nursery. The green aromatic plant tolerates transplanting easily and grows quickly. Oregano blooms in mid-summer until the end of September. Then the above-ground shoots are cut to prepare the medicinal raw material. Medicinal oregano liquid is useful because it dissolves secretions and facilitates expectoration, but it also has analgesic properties. Oregano is useful because it improves appetite and stimulates intestinal peristalsis. Tea is rich in sedative properties and prevents the development of bacteria. The tincture is effective against yeast fungi in the body.

Today, the plant is found in the Mediterranean and countries of the Middle East, India and China. The plant grows best in an open sunny area with loose soil. The plant is not demanding for maintenance. The green part and seeds are used to treat the intestinal-gastric tract, to strengthen immunity, against colds and diseases of the respiratory organs, against insomnia and obesity. Medicinal liquid is useful for pregnant women who have toxicosis and nursing mothers who have little milk. The plant is used for the treatment and prevention of cancer.
  3. Lemongrass (the Latin name is Melissa Officinalis) is a perennial herb that is also called “lemon grass”. Today there are interesting species of various leaf colors and shapes.
