    Thyme! Such a great herb, reminds me of my childhood in central otago and has amazing GI benefits and antiseptic properties plus being great to cut oil. And comfrey is a second favourite because it is so common yet not widely known but wow is it a potent wee plant for health.

    I’m such a sucker for thyme – add to lemon and honey drinks in winter for extra immunity boost

  17. Sandy says:

    For me it has to be Echinacea…it has been one of the healing herbs that has helped bring life back to my tired, exhausted and stressed body. It also looks soo vibrant and full of colour in the garden. (I know it says ‘one’ but there are soo many favourites…Calendula is soo healing on my skin, soo pretty in the garden and a yummy addition to salads too)

    Echinacea – I have an autoimmune condition so any herb that helps to boost my immune system gets my endorsement.
