2. Sheep’s Sorrel:  Awesome for healing from cancer. This is a diuretic, and so removes excess fluid from the body. It also is a tonic for the kidneys and Urinary tract. The bite-sized leaves are rich in vitamin C and have a delicious sour lemon taste. (well I guess some people would call it delicious)

3. Rosemary:  Contains caffeic acid and rosmarinic acid, two potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, as well as vitamin E. Rosemary is great added to a marinade for barbecued meat and helps reduce carcinogens.

4. Mint:  Now this, I love I put it in all sorts of things. In the summer I put it in a jug of cold water with slices of lemons for a very refreshing drink. It is great for the digestion and freshening the breath. It’s easy to grow in a pot or the garden although it could take over the garden.
