I probably say something along these lines every month about just about every herb we have covered so far, but I love Basil (Ocimum basilicum). It is definitely one of my favorite aromatic herbs. Summer time is the best, the basil is fresh from the garden, smells amazing, and finds its way into most of my summer dishes. From seasonings, marinades, grilled goodies, or baked into root veggies basil is a big feature in my kitchen.
It also has found its way into my medicine cabinet, from headaches, muscle aches, kidney stones and gout basil herb and essential oil has been a huge help to my family and is well used, loved, and appreciated.
