Gardening Herbs

In this section of Seattle organic restaurants I'm going to talk about physical and mental health benefits of herbs and gardening them. People are becoming more and more aware that using organic raw foods and herbs are very beneficial for health and well being. Many people buy herbs from healthy or organic food stores but you can also plant herbs in your backyard or pots indoors.

Gardening is good for you both physically and spiritually. By planting your herbs you can feel how the combination of sun, soil, rain and your affection can affect the well being of your plant. You can actually feel the connection between you and the harmony and rhythm in the nature.

You can grow herbs in your backyard but here in north west and Settle that we don't get many warm sunny days, you can grow herbs in pots.

Here are some of the herbals that you can grow in your backyard or pot:

Comfrey: Comfrey can be grown to be three to five feet tall having flowers in blue or yellow. Comfrey prefers sun but it can grow in partial shadow. Comfrey has external skin use for healing cuts, bruises and burns.

Lavender: Lavender can grow to be two feet tall with lovely flowers. Lavender can grow in full sun or partial shadow. Using lavender can release stress and tension and can relieve headaches.


Marjoram: Marjoram grows to be one foot tall and has tiny pink or white flowers. Marjoram needs full sun and can help to calm upset stomach and throat inflammation.

Chamomile: Chamomile can be grown to be three to four feet tall and they need full sun light. Chamomile freshly picked or dried flowers can be used in chamomile tea for relaxation, easing tooth pain and calming cranky toddlers.

Thyme: Thyme can grow to be 15 inches and can grow in partial shade and sun. Thyme is good for upset stomach and can be added to bath water to treat skin problems.
