Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera If you have ever had a bad sun burn, you know that Aloe Vera is one of the greatest plant remedies. Yes, there are many people who don’t know that Aloe Vera is actually a plant! If you cut it open, you can feel its gel-like texture. Its cooling properties relieve any cuts, rashes, burns, or insect bites. You can even use it as a moisturizer! I use it sometimes on my face to keep my skin feeling tight, cool, and smooth.

Feverfew

Feverfew If you get severe headaches like I do after a hard day of work, try this plant. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, Feverfew has formerly been used to cure fever, and is now used to treat and prevent migraines. Goodbye, headaches!

Motherwort

Motherwort As the name suggests, Motherwort is a plant that helps mothers! According to Jennifer Brett, N.D. on the Discovery Fit and Health website, Motherwort is used to treat conditions related to childbirth. Containing a chemical called leonurine, Motherwort fosters uterine contractions. It has also been used to regulate the menstrual cycle for years!

Mint

Mint Mint has so many health benefits! In addition to great breath, Mint can help with a sore throat and congested nose. It is also a great facial cleanser as it leaves your skin feeling cool and tingly. Mint is also known to help with indigestion, nausea, and cramping. So when you have an upset stomach or a cramp, try drinking Mint Tea.

Lavender

Lavender When you have trouble falling asleep, and counting sheep just doesn’t seem to work anymore, Lavender can be a huge help! The soothing scent can put your body in a state of relaxation, helping you fall asleep. It also helps relieve tension after a long day. Light a lavender scented candle or take a bubble bath with some lavender soap crystals. You’ll love it!

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel I know the name sounds funny, but this plant actually has many benefits! It cures many skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, minor cuts, bruises, and eczema. It’s great for your pores, and can remove excess oil and tighten your skin. It can also tighten and lessen the pain of varicose veins.

Usually I find myself just taking medicine for my aches and pains, but after doing research and learning about these plant remedies, I will try to take the natural route from now on. I hope you found my discoveries interesting, and will try these natural remedies as well! Do you know of any plant remedies? Or just any natural cures? Do tell!
