Healing Flowers for Your Garden

I love when it is time to plant and that time is right around the corner! 
Usually I just do an herb garden along with a couple of flowering herbs but this year I am going to work harder at my green thumb by planting healing flowers as well.
These are the flowers that will go in my Healing Garden:


Calendula - I plant this every year along with my herbs.  Calendula is a type of Marigold and helps stave away pests and critters from the veggies and herbs it is around. However unlike regular Marigold it has strong healing properties.  It is also one of my favorite healing flowers. Calendula can help with:

Muscle Spasm
Varicose Veins
Menstrual Cramps  
Sore Throats
and so much more... 
Calendula is in fact a ragweed relative so be careful if you have allergies! 
Also be careful if you take any type of sedative. 
Purple Coneflower / Echinacea

Echinacea is a flowering herb but is so beautiful it deserves to be in the FLOWER category! Medicine can be made from its leaves, flower and roots. This flowring herb is native to North America and was used by the Great Plains Indian Tribes. Echinacea can help with:

Cold Symptoms
Herpes Simplex
Bee Stings
and of course many other things as well! 
Again always do your research before using and on how to use medicinal herbs or flowers! 

Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium) is a wonderful medicinal flower that is thought to be named after the Greek God Achilles who was said to use Yarrow to stop the bleeding wounds of his soldiers! Yarrow can help with:

Loss of Appetite
Indigestion or Heartburn
Amenorrhea (irregular menstrual cycle) 
Menstrual Cramps
Muscle Spasms
Wound Healing 
And much more! 

Not only a beautiful addition to any flower garden, Lavender has so many healing properties it is a must have in any garden and even in an essential oil in your medicine cabinet! In the Bible it is said that Lavender is a holy safeguard against Evil! Lavender can be used for: 

Aid in relaxation and sleep
Bug Bites
and of course much more! 
That’s right! Dandelion! Granted most people try desperately to keep these little “weeds” away but I welcome them into my garden by having a special place for them in a raised pot! Dandelion is a wonderful herbal FLOWER that can aid in many areas of your life! 
Dandelion is wonderful in salads as well! They are rich in Vitamins A and C and have more beta carotine than carrots and more potassium than broccoli or spinach! They also have good healthy doses of copper and iron to boot! Some of the things that Dandelion can be used for are: 
Skin Conditions
Improve Kidney Function 
Strengthen Liver
Reduce Inflammation
Eliminate Warts and Acne
Coffee Substitute
Bee Stings
Intestinal Problems
And of course yet again .... so much more! 
Again always research the flowers themselves and applications or dosages! 
I can’t wait to plant my veggies and flower garden this year! 
It is not only something that one can enjoy and use for illness but the planting and nurturing of a garden itself is very healing.
