Kitchen Garden Development with Magical Healing Touch of Ayurveda

They say that a kitchen garden reflects the persona of its gardener. Although the concept is as old as the human existence somehow, it still is very prominent to many people today. The sense of contentment and joy of growing your own fresh vegetables and planting lush greens cannot be explained in mere words. Generally, people use their kitchen garden to grow some common vegetables or fruits but incorporating some plants of Ayurvedic origin can be extraordinary for retaining your family’s health. Including basic Ayurvedic plants like Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum L.), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal) and Neem (Azadirachta indica A.Juss.) in your kitchen garden will keep you motivated to use these precious herbs in your recipes and homemade medicines in the time of need.

Ideal for long-term good health, Neem is renowned to rejuvenate your skin and fight acne and blemishes. Referred to as the ‘queen of herbs’ Tulsi has tremendous anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. While Ashwagandha is packed with tons of rejuvenating properties, it also acts as a stress-buster by promoting sound, healthy sleep. Triphala is perfect for overall digestive wellness; whereas Haridra (Curcuma longa L.) features valuable inflammation-relieving properties. Last but not the least on our list of common Ayurvedic plants for your kitchen garden, Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia (Thunb.) Miers) supports the human immune system tremendously.
