11 Medicinal Herbs Native to Egypt

Forget about that paracetamol, natural herbs are the way to go.

 

Going natural is a growing trend, with YouTube filled with tutorial videos on how to make home remedies for everything from acne to diabetes. Aside from the fact that natural remedies (when they work) are generally better for you, with the current rise of medication prices in Egypt, more and more people are turning to medicinal herbs in order to save money.

But instead of raiding YouTube for complicated tutorials that use ingredients not available in the country, we’ve compiled you a list of herbs native to Egypt and their uses.

 

Coriander

For those suffering from high blood sugar, Coriander is known to have anti-diabetic effects.

Hibiscus

 

Hibiscus is used to treat coughs, asthma, and high blood pressure.

Marjoram

 

Treating babies and toddlers from colds and coughs can be scary, so for parents who prefer natural remedies, Marjoram is a good option.

Moringa

The Moringa plant has been known to help those with anaemia. 

Sage

Sage has anti-depressant effects and is even used to manage Alzheimer's.

Guava leaves

Guava leaves are notorious for their soothing effects on coughs.

Licorice

Stomach ulcers are painful and irritating, but Licorice has been known to help treat them.

Ginger

Ginger may not be everybody's cup of tea, but a cup of ginger tea is exactly what you need to cure a cold.

Doum palm

 

Doum is an excellent option for high blood pressure relief.

Carob

It may not look like much, but Carob is known to help ease indigestion.

Fenugreek

Loss of appetite can become a serious issue, but Fenugreek has appetite-boosting properties.
