Meadows and forests are full of medicinal herbs that help us in everyday life to relieve discomfort. All you have to do is find and above all recognize these plants. The often simpler method is to plant an SOS herb box in your own home. This has certainly on the smallest balcony or on the windowsill in the kitchen room.

Medicinal plants in your own home

In large garden centers already a multiplicity at medicinal herbs is offered. Just drop by the gardener of your confidence and buy from dandelion to camomile to marigold medicinal herbs. So you can already fill the most diverse flower boxes. Here are some suggestions:

  • "Sleepless box" with lemon balm, lavender and valerian
  • "Halsschmerzkasten" with ribwort, mallow and sage
  • "Digestive box" with dandelion, gundel vine, angelica and yarrow

My personal SOS herbalist

My all-round carefree package in herbal form should help me with minor ailments. Here I plant medicinal herbs, which are to find their application from headaches to throat complaints to insomnia as SOS herbs. Each of the plants I grow has a variety of ingredients and uses.

  • Lemon Balm has a soothing and antispasmodic effect on stomach and menstrual problems
  • Lavender helps with sleep problems
  • Sage is great for throat infections and stubborn, coughing cough
  • Echinacea / Coneflow helps with colds and strengthens the immune system
  • Meadowsweet is a hot tip for a headache

Karina Reichl's SOS herbalist

Lavender, sage, lemon balm and echinacea grow in the SOS herbal box

The meadowsweet should be planted in an extra pot, as the medicinal plant loves moist soil. Put it best in a water-filled coaster. The sun hat should be repotted over time to have more space for the plant to develop a variety of its effective flowers. And when the first problem arises, I pick some of the leaves and flowers and make an SOS tea.

Karina Reichl blogs at fräuleingrü

Medicinal plants grow right outside the front door. Even if you live in the city like me. I want to give that to the readers. So right at the beginning of my apprenticeship as a TEH practitioner (Traditional European Medicine), it was clear to me that I wanted to start a blog. Also for myself to perpetuate all the recipes I've tried. Weekly there is a new recipe on a wide range of topics on frausteingrü It is important to me that the recipes are quick and easy to implement, so that the readers really start to integrate herbs, roots, flowers or berries into their everyday lives. For what nature provides us with active substances and remedies must not be forgotten.
