6 home remedies with medicinal plants

Here are 6 home remedies with medicinal plants that can be of great help.


The correct elimination of toxins through urine is essential and essential for our body to remain healthy.

  • A natural and very effective diuretic is the Retama infusion , drink in doses of 2-4 cups a day. 25 g of flowers are boiled in a liter of water for 20 minutes, let it rest for 5 minutes, strain and drink. The broom is an excellent plant with diuretic action, but it is also used as an infusion of the leaves and their aromatic yellow flowers, for liver diseases, abscesses, rheumatism, gout, sciatica, skin conditions and herpes .


  • Another very effective remedy is the Mallow infusion . We will need 25 g of dried mallow in 5 deciliters of water, filter it and drink it on an empty stomach for 25 days. Mallow has emollient properties (deflates tissues), is indicated in cases of lung conditions , and also acts as a laxative .

It should be remembered that to avoid fluid retention we should not abuse salt, make sure to include as many fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables as possible in our diet and exercise regularly. .


Soft hands

If we have dry or not very soft hands, it is enough to take the most tender shoots of nettle (it is advisable to use gloves to collect it) and boil them for a quarter of an hour with water. Let cool and strain.

We apply this natural remedy with gauze or cotton, tapping on the area we want to treat.

With regard to the skin, nettle eliminates blemishes, pimples, eczema, herpes, redness, acne, it also regenerates the scalp and fights problems related to dandruff, seborrhea and hair loss.

Formerly the nettle was used in cases of rheumatism, in addition to having hemostatic action (stops or decreases bleeding), restorative, stimulates the digestive system, is also galactogenic (increases the production of breast milk), is antianemic or antidiabetic.

Skin impurities

Boil 50 g of mallow leaves in a liter of water for just 2 minutes , let it cool and strain. We will drink 3-4 cups a day.

This mallow infusion will help us take care of our skin from the inside, helping it look younger and free of impurities. .



A very common problem that we have all suffered or currently suffer from is dandruff. Its origin can be due to many causes: from a period of stress to a poor diet to scalp problems.

For this case, we are going to turn to a fabulous plant that is very effective: nettle.

We will need 100 g of nettle , including the roots, and boil in a liter of water for 15 minutes. We will apply it to the scalp after washing the hair and rinsing it after 10 minutes, although you can also leave it until the next time you wash your hair. .

Hair loss

During some seasons of the year, hair tends to fall out more. It is also common for hair to lose a lot a few months after giving birth. This basil- based home remedy can help you in this case.

We prepare a basil infusion with 10 g of leaves for a liter of water. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes, strain and to apply it, rub it vigorously on the scalp.

Basil, in addition to strengthening hair, helps to stop hair loss. But in addition, basil has other properties such as cases of gastritis, difficult digestion, stomach pain, meteorism, vomiting, dizziness, inflammation of the mouth and throat, etc. .

Irritated eyes

If you feel irritated eyes you can improve with this remedy that I propose.

We make an infusion of chamomile , 20 g for each liter of water, let it rest for 10 minutes and filter. When it is at room temperature we apply it by soaking compresses and tapping the closed eyes lightly. It can also be used in cases of conjunctivitis, tired eyes, as it has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic action.

Chamomile also acts as a soothing on the nervous system, it is sedative and its use is also effective in cases of diarrhea.
