If you were to grow a small herb garden for menopausal relief, what would be the most useful herbs to grow and why? I have a small space to work with but any and all suggestions are welcome!
Hello RutabagaRachel & welcome to the Herbalism forum.
I love your question! I should plant a garden like that!
Of course, what would grow best depends on how much sun/shade and what kind of soil/drainage you have, but here's an off-the-top-of-my-head list (great for PMS too):
dandelion (yup, that weed)
black cohosh - gorgeous flowers!
mugwort - potentially invasive 'weed' & can increase bleeding!
dong quai - can increase bleeding!
chaste tree (vitex)
flax (ground seeds)
evening primrose (root & ground seeds)
nerve soothers, sedatives & anti-depressants
oats (use both the green stems & fresh seedheads)
hops - potentially invasive
st. joan's wort - don't use with chemical anti-depressants
help with heavy bleeding (flooding)
yarrow & dandelion (again)
marshmallow - beautiful flowers!
That's a start. I'm sure the good folks here can add lots more to the list.
I was wondering if kits like this work:
