Strawberry Basil Water is so refreshing! 🌱🍓🌱🍓 .
So, let's talk about Basil here for a minute! Basil is such an awesome herb! It is part of the mint family and can be used for both sweet or savory dishes. There are many varieties, but the most common variety found in grocery stores is large leaf basil. I find organic basil year round in the produce department of most grocery stores for about $1.99 for a small bunch in a plastic container. .
I also like to grow it in the summer because it loves warm weather (just like me!) .
Sure basil taste great and mostly it's well know for the part it plays in Italian recipes, but do you know that this power house of an herb is totally amazing and is such a blessing to have in our lives?! .
Here's a few of the things basil helps with:
it decreases swelling in joints and relaxes muscles, it's an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral, great for digestion, colds, flu, mono, herpes, shingles, IBS, colitis, crohn's, celiac, nausea, stomach cramps, gas, intestinal parasites, cardiovascular health, irregular heart rhythms and spasms. And Basil Essential Oil is a great aspirin/ ibuprofen substitute because it decreases swelling in joints and tissue especially for those with fibromyalgia and arthritis. It is also anti-fungal and it's great for wounds, rashes, warts and insect bites. @medicalmedium
Basil essential oil is also helpful for anxiety, low energy, exhaustion, nervousness and depression. .
So, what do you think about Basil now? Pretty incredible isn't it?! 😍 .
