Only ten?  I have so many favorite herbs! 

Dandelion is my hands down #! favorite. It is so pretty and good for SO many things! Alfalfa and kelp closely follow, because with these three alone you have all the vitamins and minerals there are.

Then comes plantain, because it is such a useful herb to have in the lawn when you step on bees or get into poison ivy.  I use it often in creams.  It's very good for the skin.  It's also good to chew on if you have a toothache.
  (Plus it is from this plant you get psyllium seeds!)

Melissa, to lift my spirits...Peppermint to make all the other herbs work better in combination...Lavendar for it's soothing effect...Burdock to cleanse the blood and liver...Rosemary for my brain, and Mullein to help heal the lungs. 

I could easily add Slippery Elm, Comfrey, Motherswort, and so many others to this list, but the rules say keep it to ten!

Aloe!  Oh, my...it's hard to not keep adding more!  Hahaha!  Jewelweed is one of my favorites!  And Red Clover grows all around, so it must be pretty good!  (That's how you reeeeeeeally can tell! God must think we have big need of it, so that's why it's everywhere!)

Check out my regular blog:  http://www.allnaturalhealthworks.com/blog  If you scroll down the side of the page and click on the topic of Herbs, you'll see some of the articles I've written about on this topic.  Take a look at some of what grows in my yard, and then go out and look at your own!

I think the very best herbs are the ones that grow right where you are.  Chinese herbs are fantastic, but they're best if you're in China.  In America I prefer American herbs...In Italy, ones that grow there are the best.  God knows what we need where we're at!

(I know I don't grow kelp in my yard, but it's so good it HAD to go on the list!  Hahaha!  The rest grow right here where I'm at.)

Oh, boy...I forgot garlic.  It's sure hard to keep this list down!!!  And Echinacea!  Oh, yeah!  Anyways, here is the list as it stands!
