Oregano is another must as it can thrive indoors and outdoors. It also has natural oils that contain an essential compound called carvacol that helps disinfect a wound to avoid bacteria.

Maintenance tip: Oregano grows best under light shade. Cut it occasionally and although this may be grown in pots, it is best planted in the ground.

Rosemary is a good source of antioxidants that can help boost your immune system. Its leaves can be boiled and be used to even improve digestion. If you plan on growing rosemary, place it in a terracotta pot so that water can be drained easily.

Maintenance tip: Rosemary is best planted in the ground and under bright light. It’s a must to prune it regularly. 


Mint leaves can be used as a delicious ingredient for your meals! It can also help ward off pests as insects and rodents hate its smell. 

Maintenance tip: Grow under full sun or light shade. Runners easily root and can be divided to make new plants.
