Harvesting Herbs for Health

Lemon Balm & a basket of Thyme.
 Hi Everyone,
Today we are again harvesting herbs. Herbs are wonderful for health benefits and many of our common medications started out from herbs.

I am getting ready for the "Cold & Flu" season, so I harvested up some of my favorites and have shown them below.
Herb Identification.

Excellent when boiled and reduced for a cough remedy. (disclaimer: I recommend this in my opinion. I do not promote this as a medical claim. I accept no responsibility if used.)
 For a Cough Remedy:
wash herbs when fresh and dry in bundles upside down till leaves are brittle.
For fresh herbs: wash herbs and chop in food chopper.
Place herbs into sauce pan and cover with filtered water.
PRACTICAL. (oops!)

Lemon Balm is wonderful for a sore throat. (disclaimer: I recommend this in my opinion. I do not promote this as a medical claim. I accept no responsibility if used.)

Rosemary "Tea" is great for cramping and Sage "Tea" is a good tummy tonic. (disclaimer: I recommend this in my opinion. I do not promote this as a medical claim. I accept no responsibility if used.)

This is my first year growing the Tri-Colored Sage. I like it and it has a good flavor. I even used it for a hair rinse to soften the grey in my hair. (disclaimer: I recommend this in my opinion. I do not promote this as a medical claim. I accept no responsibility if used.)
For tea, add crushed/chopped fresh leaves or dried leaves  into a pot of filtered water. Bring to boil, but do not boil. Remove from heat and let seep for at least 20 minutes.  For remedy tea, let seep for at least 1 hour or more. Will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
I hope you got a few good tips today!
Enjoy!
