Herb Garden Suggestions Part 2

Even if you live in an apartment, condo, or living situation that doesn’t come with a yard or garden space you can still cultivate your own herbs in the kitchen, a sunny window sill, or patio! There are a plethora of herb garden ideas you can choose from that will literally spice up your life!

The best thing about this kind of gardening is that it really doesn’t take a lot of effort to put together.

      There are herbs and natural supplements that people say have helped manage fibromyalgia symptoms. They include echinacea, black cohosh, cayenne, lavender, milk thistle, and B vitamins. Nevertheless, there are no definitive studies on the efficacy of these natural therapies.

        Thanks. Aswell as there being no definitive studies on the efficacy of these natural therapies, each individual has a very different experience with pain and what is the root cause of the pain therefore it is hard to know what herb will help that specific individual. I see our body’s as a big chemical experiment… Amber ❤

        Ah yes our bodies are big chemical factors owing to the hormons and enzymes it has. Rightly said Amber. Hope you find the herbs useful.
