Psalms 104:14 “He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herbs for the service of man”
When planting, a good way to start is to begin with herbs. Their easy to plant, and boy do they grow! They benefits of the store shelved herbs are very little if any. Sometimes months go by before bought, sitting while depleting the nutrients. There are vast many different types of herbs the Lord has given us to cure many illnesses. So do we really need manmade over the counter medicine that damages our bodies or makes us sicker, or worse, kill us! Natural is always a better way of life. Try it! Relieve some stress by getting outdoors and getting your hands in the earth!It’s where we came from, and seeing something so beautiful you have planted grow! An herb out of many perfect for planting now is as follows:
Has natural anti-inflammation,antiseptic, and anti-pruritic properties, which cools, calms and soothes the area of inflammation. These could be anywhere within or out of your body. Areas inflammation affects like the digestive and repertory system, skin, and even relieves a simple headache! Mint can improve problems like:
Headache and migraines
Repertory problems or disorders (chronic cough, asthma, congestion, bronchitis, common cold)
Skin (insect bites, some acne, eczema, also can be used as a bug repellent)
Digestive (nausea, upset stomach, indigestion, also good for a breath freshener)
The mint leave can be dunk by being boiled in water for internal use, even it in oil is wonderful for external use. It you are unable to do either of these two preparations, simply rubbing or mashing the leave together to release its oils or chew it up and swallowing it up are just fine!
First time planter GET READYYYY…… GO!
Find a open space in your yard. If you do not have a yard and reside in an apartment, a balcony, porch, or even a window facing the sun will do! You’ll need a small pot (pint size) that can be purchased virtually anywhere (hint: 99 Cent Store), get yourself some organic seeds and soil, or you can use the dirt from your own yard. Fill your pots ¾’s high. Add 2 to 3 seeds in the center of the soil about ½ inch down ONLY, not too deep or it will not come up. Water well but not too much (plants can drown too). Its best to underwater than to over water. In about 4 days to 1 full week you will see your little sprout come up! Place your plant in the right amount of sunlight (will say on seed’s package). And watch it grow!
Remember, to water, but not too much!!
