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.



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