Yes, a well-placed and on-trend plant can certainly boost your Instagram presence, but greenery also contributes to your general wellness: Plants improve air quality and bring mood-boosting properties to your home (and your office), after all. So why not take things a step further and grows herbs in your kitchen?

By growing a herb garden, you'll be able to easily add a sprig of this and a sprinkling of that to the healthy dish you're whipping up. Your herb supply is multi-purpose, too. Add bits to cocktails, and, if you can grow super herbs, you can stock your medicine cabinet with them as well.

Thanks to the ingenuity and genius design hacks of internet users, this addition to your kitchen won't necessarily remind you of your grandmother's house (just me?). Plus, putting one together isn't hard. There are many kits available online, like this option that comes complete with nine different plants and reusable pots. To get inspired, here are the prettiest herb gardens I found.

Instead of getting rid of your empty jars, use them as planters for your herb garden. Better yet if you choose different sizes and heights.

If you have a shorter cabinet, shelf, or cart, it can be the perfect place to store your herbs. Extra bonus: You can keep your gardening supplies in the space underneath.
