Spotlight on Herbs: Cilantro and Coriander | Cilantro has quickly become one of my favorite garden plants. It is incredibly easy to grow, and its beautiful leaves add a fresh burst of flavor to so many summertime dishes. Add its many health benefits and medicinal properties to the mix, and it's no wonder I grow this plant several of my gardens!| GNOWFGLINS.com

Spotlight on Herbs: Marjoram | I rarely see marjoram in the spotlight. It humbly takes its place next to showier herbs like borage and bay leaf trees, and more popular rosemary and thyme. And yet, year after year, this little plant thrives in both garden and pot. It survives the long winter, basking in the light of a sunny window. With both culinary and medicinal uses, it's an herb that deserves a second look. | GNOWFGLINS.com

How to Make (and Use) an Herbal Decoction | An herbal infusion uses the leaves, stems, and flowers of a plant. An herbal decoction, although very similar to an infusion, is prepared from the roots, bark, and seeds, and you might call it a concentrated tea. I'm going to show you how easy it is to make and use an herbal decoction. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Red Raspberry Leaf for Migraines | Migraines are no fun. Up until a few years ago I'd never had one. I was thankful because I knew people who were debilitated with them: vomiting, nausea, and the inability to function. And then I got one out of the blue. And another. And another. I was dumbfounded. Why was I getting migraines? And what could I do about it? | GNOWFGLINS.com

Here are five seemingly common plants that happen to be anything but common when it comes to reducing inflammation and relieving swelling and pain. | GNOWFGLINS.com

How to Make (and Use) an Herbal Infusion | Herbal infusions are one of the most basic, yet effective, methods of using herbs. They can be infused in water, oil, or vinegar to produce healing remedies, or eaten in tasty dressings and condiments. Wonderful and simple! | GNOWFGLINS.com
