It’s fair to say that in this modern age of medicine we are pretty much sorted on the medicinal front. There is a pill or cure for pretty much any common ailment that can be bought over the counter at a pharmacy, but that doesn’t mean that some of the old fashioned, traditional remedies aren’t still worth knowing about. It can sometimes be nice to take a more holistic approach to things. These are 5 superb healing plants to keep in your home!
