This is AnnahMarie of Organic Gurlz Gardens.
We at Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana would like to explain why it is important to have edible flowers as well as herbs and vegetables in your home garden to benefit your unique, individual body.
Here is just a Few examples:
Tansy. The English name “tansy” orginates from the Greek word “athanasia,” which means “immortality.” Tansy was thought to confer immortality, so it was used for embalming.
Despite serious safety concerns, the segments of the tansy plant that grow above the ground are used to make medicine.
Tansy is commonly used for digestive tract problems including stomach and intestinal ulcers, certain gallblader conditions, gas, bloating, stomachache, stomach spasms, and poor appetite.

The above ground parts of the Herb Yarrow are used to make medicinal medicine.
Yarrow is typically used for fever, common cold, hay fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and to help with inducing sweat.
Some people chew the fresh leaves to relieve toothaches.
Yarrow consists of many chemicals that might be able to affect blood pressure and possibly have anti-inflammatory effects.

When used properly, the leaves of the PennyRoyal plant can safely deter fleas and insects.
People stand by using the PennyRoyal plant to deter pests, But there is a catch.
In recent studies with information on the active ingredient in both species of Pennyroyal, pulegone, merits a recall of taking PennyRoyal into your body.
In 1996, two California infants, after being given mint tea,where in which the “mint” tea was fatal, and the mint resulted in being PennyRoyal.
NOTE: We at Organic Gurlz Gardens recommend caution when dealing with PennyRoyal.
