Pure LOCAL honey(not the supermarket stuff) as local as possible, wound healer, sweetener and cure all. Thyme:anti-microbial, anti bacterial. Garlic: anti biotic. Lavender:relaxing,headache, insect bites,stings,cuts and grazes. Meadowsweet: anti inflammatory painkiller. Pot Marigold(Calendula officianalis):easy to grow annual, antiseptic,wound healer,anti fungal. Aloe Vera: wound healer,small burns, have one on kitchen window sill. Get a basic herbal book, learn it and KNOW your herbs and plants. OH is the Herbal Queen, ask any questions and i'll try and get an answer for you.

RE: Herbal first aid.
Thanks for this, BP.

I'm just starting on this area now, looking to plant as many herbs as I can squeeze into pots and spare corners of the garden. I already have:
mint (decongestant, also good for stomach aches and chest pains),
basil (asthma, stress, also antiviral),
lemon balm (sedative, good for mental alertness, plus anti-bacterial)
chamomile (soothing, anti-sceptic, anti-inflammatory - and apparently good for piles!)
plus lavender, thyme, rosemary, chives, marjoram etc but haven't yet tried growing garlic. Any tips on how to do it?

Echinacea is the one I want most - shortens colds, helps coughs and respiratory problems, good for sore throats and headaches - but I've had no luck with it so far. It seems it needs a LOT of sun, as well as a very deep container for the long roots. Sad
