Herbs attract beneficial insects. These insects help keep parasites and other harmful insects away from your garden. This means you won’t have to use pesticides as much (or at all.)

Some herbs also have medicinal benefits. Chamomile, lavender, lemon balm, and peppermint are just a few herbs that are good for your body. They can help in ways like easing nausea, boosting your immune system, and more.

Growing your own herbs can help keep some money in your wallet. No more store-bought stuff either! Also,  can you imagine what it’s like to add fresh thyme, straight from your garden, to your spaghetti sauce?
