Basil- an herb we often don't know much about

This is from Southern Living May 2010 it teachs you how to grow the basil. They suggest you can use it to keep flies away. I thought it was interesting because they mention there are six kinds of basil you can grow.

This article is from Health Magazine May 2010 on diy remedies for things. The only thing I can say, is I normally make a tea broth with basil and drink it. I don't just smell it. I add 1 tablespoon or 2 teaspoons of sugar to drink it though.

This article was found in the Lowe's creative ideas for home and garden magazine they send out every two months.
I hope this helps you learn more about basil oops, basil is also known for its spiritual benefits as well. They are love, physic development, and protection.
This is something that is important to our diet.

  1. Didn't know all the health benefits of it, thanks! I adore making caprese salads with fresh basil especially in the summer. Sliced/diced tomatoe topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped basil and then drizzled with a touch of olive oil & balsamic glaze.
