10 Medicinal Plants You must Have in Your Backyard

  • Chicory – The Painkilling Plant You Should Grow in Your Backyard.

Add 1 Tbsp of ground chicory root to your coffee or tea. It’s a prebiotic and natural laxative that will help move things along and regulate your bowels.

  • Yarrow – The Backyard Wound Healer.

If you ever get a toothache, try chewing on a fresh yarrow leaf as it will numb the area and provide needed relief.

  • California Poppy – Better Than Sleeping Pills.

Gather any of these: leaves, flowers, or stems. Cut finely, add to a cup or pot, and pour hot water. Let it steep for about 10 minutes. Drink warm just before bed for deep,uninterrupted, and restful sleep that night.

  •  Marshmallow – The Most Powerful Plant for a Healthy Digestive System.

Pull out a few marshmallow roots, wash off the dirt, and add them to a glass jar or cup. Cover with ice-cold water and let the mucilage extract for a few hours. Drink for a soothing and restorative effect all along your digestive tract, from mouth to colon.

  • Chamomile – The Natural Antibiotic.

Take a handful of dried or fresh chamomile leaves and add them to a warm bath. Step inside to relax your entire body, especially sore muscles, and aching joints.

  • Evening Primrose – A Natural Remedy for Skin and Nerves.

Grab a leaf or root of the plant and crush it to make a poultice. Apply it directly to a wound or skin rash to promote healing.

  •  Lavender – The Perennial Anti-Inflammatory Herb.

Gather some fresh lavender from your garden and put it in a small herb pouch. Place the pouch inside your sleeping pillow or under your mattress. It will ward off mosquitos and other insects and help you fall asleep faster.

  • Echinacea – The Most Powerful Immunity Plant You Should Grow.

Dig up some echinacea roots and slice them rather thinly. Put them in a pot with water and let everything simmer for 30 minutes. Drink hot for an immune boost at the first sign of a cold or any other illness.

  • Calendula – The Herb You Need to Keep Close During Dark Times.

During the Civil War, calendula flowers were packed directly into open wounds, and they were used by surgeons when dressing wounds to promote healing and prevent infection.

  • Feverfew – Nature’s Aspirin for Fevers and Migraines.

Chew some of its leaves raw whenever you have a fever or feel a migraine attack is about to strike (very important to use before it does).
