Carson City, NV – October 6, 2017 – Growing medicinal herb seeds at home seems to be making a comeback. Although these plants have been used for centuries, they eventually faded into the background as modern medicines became commercially available. But thanks to the resurgence of organic gardening and the need for survival preparedness, many people are now realizing the benefits of medicinal herbs as a natural alternative to healing.
Home and Garden America, a Nevada-based non gmo company, has seen a growing demand for medicinal herb seeds these past few years. “Most of our customers are home gardeners and survival enthusiasts. A lot of them want to revert to a simpler way of living, which of course includes growing one’s own food and making natural herbal remedies. This back-to-nature lifestyle is the main reason why we’re seeing a higher demand not just for our heirloom fruit and vegetable seeds, but also our herb seeds,” said a company official.
Whether they’re for gardening or survival purposes, medicinal herbs offer a wide range of uses. From culinary to remedial, the benefits are countless. When used in cooking, the herbs can significantly improve flavor and add important nutrients to food.
“The fresher the herbs, the better. Fresh herbs are highly recommended for optimum flavor, that’s why indoor herb gardens are common in many kitchens today. It gives quick access to the plants and you can just cut as you need them,” the official remarked.
When used for survival preparedness, preppers can store medicinal herb seeds in their emergency kits so they can grow the plants during a survival situation. The Home and Garden America official remarks, “Medicine won’t always be available when disaster strikes. In this case, you can turn to your survival herb seeds for help and quickly grow them for your remedial needs. It would be better if you plant them beforehand in your home garden so you’ll already have access to the herbal plants before disaster strikes. You can make them into essential oils, herbal tonics, salves and the like and carry them in your survival pack for future use.”
Some good herbs to start with for home gardening or survival prepping are basil, borage, cumin, yarrow and thyme. These plants are ideal because they work both in the kitchen and in the wild.
• Basil may be known as a staple ingredient in delicious tomato sauces and pestos, but it is also extremely beneficial in improving appetite and treating worm infections, stomach spams, insect bites and snake bites.
• Borage can be added to salad and soups but it also functions as a natural medicine for colds, cough, fever, inflammation and skin disorders.
• Cumin goes well with Indian, Mexican and Spanish cuisines but in survival mode, it can treat colic, diarrhea, inflammation, bowel and muscle spasms and gas.
• Thyme is a well-known cooking ingredient that doubles as an herbal remedy for arthritis, bacterial infections, bronchitis, cough, diarrhea, fungal infections, gastritis, parasitic infections, sore throat and tonsillitis.
• Yarrow can make salads more flavorful but colds, cramps, diarrhea, dysentery, fever, flatulence, toothache and wound infections can be treated by this powerful herb.
Throughout the centuries, medicinal herbs have proven their worth as a valuable companion for gardeners and survivalists alike.
