Lavender - These flowers and the oils derived from them not only smell wonderful, but they also have anti-bacterial, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Lavender repels mosquitos and attracts bees in the garden! Feed the bees and keep the bugs at bay!
Comfrey - Another calming plant, this is excellent for calming the skin, assisting with antioxidant efforts, and relieving anxiety. Gardening tip: This plant is extremely simple to grow and grows FAST (from personal experience)! It's delicious in teas and can be infused into your favorite oils for everyday use. *If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, avoid using this product.
Calendula – Calendula flowers (also known as marigolds) have medicinal properties and are frequently used in teas and extracts to help with irritation and skin issues. Calendula is wonderful in a bath and can help relieve joint pain. It is an easy-to-grow flower that adds a beautiful pop of yellowish gold to any garden or landscape. Dry the flowers, stems, and leaves before infusing them in oils, honey, or incorporating them into a tea bag!
Chamomile – These lovely little flowers pack a powerful punch! Chamomile is frequently associated with calming someone who has overworked themselves, or with assisting someone in winding down so they can sleep. These flowers can not only help with this, but they can also help with inflammation, internal pain, and, yes, anxiety. Chamomile is a very hardy plant that can grow almost anywhere. It grows quickly and provides a lovely backdrop for other flowers you want to include in your garden!
