Basil – a Treasure Chest of Healing

  My new favorite herb this year is Basil! ALL OF THEM! All of them, you ask? Yes! There are so many various types of basil and each one is unique and essential for various reasons.

The Holy Basil, on the other hand, is not as aromatic, but the...

As I type, they are safely taking a nice wet bath in the tub to shake loose any little critters that might be clinging to their stems. After that, I’ll shake off the water, hang the marshmallow by bundles and  place in a dark, well ventilated area, and the rest will go into the dehydrator. After everything is totally dry, a volume of each will be ground up finely and made into a healing herbal mix. The...
