19 Helpful Plants You Can Grow For Effective Healing

Let’s be honest, Mother Nature provides us with so many natural remedies, pretending like there’s one condensed list would be an insult to her thoughtfulness and ingenuity.

So, we’re going to focus on a wide variety of healing plants that will hopefully cover the bulk of what you need to have in your medicine cabinet. We’ve listed the various things each of these healing plants can help with in an easy-to-skim format. That way, you’ll be able to tell at a glance which plants you might want to have on hand (and maybe even grow yourself!) for you and your family.

We are not licensed medical practitioners, so the information about each of these herbs comes from the linked studies that are included under the properties listed for each herb. If you want more information about any of the properties listed, just click that property to be taken directly to the relevant study.

And, if you don’t have time, space, and/or desire to grow these plants yourself, you can visit our Gardening Products page for these plants in high-quality supplement form!
