A medicinal herb is a seed-producing annual, biennial, or perennial that does not develop persistent woody tissue but dies down at the end of a growing season and/or a plant or plant part valued for its medicinal, savory, or aromatic qualities.

Some garden herbs include:
Lavender, Thyme, Sage, Basil, Rosemary, Mint, Yarrow, and Peppermint.

Those are some you may use on a every day or weekly basis. You may use them as teas, salves, poultices, and tinctures for healing purposes.

More common herbal remedies, include horseradish ( which helps with sinus infections ) and cabbage ( singularly effective poultice for shingles and hives ).

A field of Echinacea can provide a wealth of immune - boosting remedies.

The flowers of St. John's wort have medicinal properties that are useful for relieving stress and anxiety.
