Growing Herbs at Home: What’s in it for me?

With the onset of the pandemic, most of us have been cooped up in our houses, mandated to stay inside and do practically everything in a remote setting, and have had little to no social interaction. We’ve lived in fear that the more we go outside, the more likely we are risking our lives. As the number of cases continues to increase, so does our anxiety. Without us even realizing, we’ve collapsed to a full-blown physical, emotional and mental exhaustion. This is why we need to be more proactive in addressing these issues. Some resort to retail therapy, while some prefer binge-watching their favorite series. As for us here at Malagos Homegrown Produce, we’ve been so drawn to the idea of growing herbs at home.

Starting your own herb garden and reap all of its benefits! Whether you want to elevate your home-cooked meals or simply enjoy its boundless health benefits - physically and mentally, this newfound love is equally fun and fulfilling. You don’t even need a big room for it, a small sunny balcony or even an unused corner spot in your garden can do the trick. To get you started, here are some healthy online herbs and spices in Davao City you can grow: 

  • Rosemary-  is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. Laboratory studies have shown rosemary to be rich in antioxidants, which play an important role in neutralizing harmful particles called free radicals. It also helps alleviate muscle aches and indigestion. To top it all of, rosemary also elevates the taste of roasted chicken and lamb. With this fresh and on hand at all times, imagine the cut it will make to your grocery cost and grocery time. No more going around the market looking for herbs, you have one right outside your doorstep.
  • Oregano- Whether sprinkled over pizza, used as a broth’s star ingredient, or worked into a rich, thick marinade, oregano undeniably makes everything tastier. This has been proven effective for cough, sinuses, poor digestion and sore throat. A subtle balance between sweet and savory, fresh potted oregano is a definite must-have to your kitchen and your garden! 
  • Green Tea-  is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any tea. Unsweetened brewed green tea is a zero-calorie beverage. Green tea was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health, and regulate body temperature.
