Balkan savory in our garden 🍃
One of the herbal plants I wanted to be able to grow in our garden was the spice - savory. My family likes spice very much and that is why she is often present at our table.
I planted the herb in the garden beds around the aubergines and peppers.
During and after flowering, I collected the aboveground part of the plant and dried it in the shade in a dry and ventilated place.
After it dried, I grind by hand and put it in glass jars - ready to eat as a spice and as an herb.
In Bulgarian folk medicine savory is used for headaches, dizziness, palpitations, high blood pressure, vomiting and others.
The herb stimulates the activity of the stomach and intestines and is used in gastrointestinal diseases as a painkiller.
It has an expectorant effect, which is why a decoction of it is recommended for acute cough.
