Window Sill Herb Garden

Growing some herbs on a window sill is a good way to keep eating healthy all year round. Garlic greens, chives, basil, aloe, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme all grow well near a window with southern exposure. All of these herbs have great health benefits, too. Placing them on a window sill over a kitchen sink has several advantages, including ease of watering and convenience of cooking. Touching the plants has antibacterial qualities and helps prevent the spread of germs. Touching and harvesting the plants also helps release the scent aiding in aromatherapy. Putting herbs on your bedroom’s window sill will help purify and fortify the air, as well as, add humidity. (Keeping your mucous membranes moist is most important during the cold and flu season. Dusting the plants with your hands then misting the leaves with water help increase the health benefits.)
