Herbal medicine in Ireland, using local, native plants, is experiencing a renaissance in Ireland. In fact, after compiling statistics from our reader survey, we discovered that it is the most requested type of article. So we asked expert Marina Kesso of Iona Herbals to compile a list of the best herbs to grow in Ireland, and what ailments they can ease.

Marina in her herbal paradise

Marina studied Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine, and grows medicinal plants in North Sligo. She makes many of her own herbal medicines and runs courses and workshops for the public. She also teaches other herbalists how to grow medicinal plants. With her partner Ross Hennessy, they run Bareroot Botanicals, a specialist medicinal plant nursery. Marina also helped to establish the project HerbBĂ­s, founded to promote the use of medicinal plants. The project travels to different events over the summer months giving people interested in herbal medicine the opportunity to learn about their healing properties in a beautiful environment.

Here are some of her favourites.
