5 Fundamental herbs for wellness

Herbs and essential oils have been used in medicine, beauty products, teas, and food for centuries. The healing powers in these ingredients lie in their ability to support and boost your natural healing system. Natural wellness has become a buzzword in the recent decade; with many people turning back to the botanicals that started it all.

With such a wide variety of herbs and essential oils available, it's easy to become overwhelmed. In case you didn't know the difference, allow us to explain:

Herbs are the plant, root, or flower that contains essential oils. You either consume your herbs fresh or dried. Essential oils are extracted directly from the plant, root, or flower and can be described as the purest form of natural goodness.

Below we've listed five of our favourite fundamental herbs, that we would recommend you add to your daily wellness routine.


Also referred to as the “purple coneflower,” echinacea contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral properties. It is a very popular herb to use when battling with flu symptoms.


Peppermint is recognised for its fresh and pleasant minty taste. It is an easy and versatile herb to add to your diet. Peppermint has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, but also acts as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever that can help with headaches as well as digestive problems.


Dried daisy-like flowers called chamomile flowers are used to make chamomile tea. Many studies suggest that chamomile is best known for the ability to help people relax, reduce anxiety, and induce sleep.

Lemon Verbena

Best known to help muscle spasms, indigestion, reduce fever, and increase appetite. The lemon verbena plant has a distinct lemony scent, which intensifies when you touch or crush the leaves.


Goldenseal can be taken as a supplement or used as an ointment to heal skin wounds. This herb is a popular aid for bladder and digestive problems, liver conditions, and used for infections of the mucous membranes.

The best part is that all these ingredients are found in Sportron's Infagard. Infagard comes in a handy 30ml bottle that you can keep on you throughout your day. All you need is 15-20 drops daily to help strengthen your body's immune system.
