Herbs are not just for flavor to the food. Their properties are so unlimited that they often solve our hands even in ... cleaning.

Take for example tarragon. It can be a unique treatment for tooth care. In fact, the ancient Greeks used to chew it when they had a toothache. But the toothache not to pass us at least will have a clear breath.

Majoran is a natural aromatic. Besides, the fact that Venus, according to mythology, chewed marzipan leaves, must "froze" us, that something more the goddess of love would know We can still rub a little inside the elbow or behind the ear. And if you have not yet been convinced, for its beneficial properties, remember that marjoram offers 520% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K, making it one of the richest sources. So, in a nutshell, marjoram is indicated for proper bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis.

Rosemary is a must especially for the summer months, as it is a "red cloth" for mosquitoes. For the winter months again, we can use it against hair loss and dandruff by boiling a handful of leaves in two cups of water. After the water has cooled down, we rinse our hair with rosemary and goodbye ... baldness.

Aromatic oregano is an effective cure for the treatment of colds. Its oil is especially effective, so it's good to put a few drops under the tongue or 2-3 drops in a glass of water or juice before we drink it.

But oregano also has antimicrobial properties that can "fight" E-Coli, the bacterium that is responsible for urinary tract infections.

Thymol, contained in thyme, acts as antiseptic and disinfectant. Add a sprig of thyme in warm water with honey and lemon and make a relaxing drink that prevents bronchitis and cleanses the lungs.

But before we do anything we ask our dermatologist.

Cilantro (or coriander) is considered treatment for the headache rather than unfair. Its leaves release juices that relieve the intense pain. A good tactic is to even sleep with a sheet of coriander on our headrest. While we consume coriander, we can say goodbye to diseases as they are appropriate to get ... immunity.

The daily ... ... parsley can rid us of the dark circles and illuminate our skin. Just crush a few sheets and apply the paste to the face. And of course it is useless to mention that if you chew a few parsley leaves, we automatically get fresh breath.
