Fun Food Fact For Today - Basil's Big Benefits!

Basil is one of those herbs that could almost be a vegetable it is used so widely.  I love that Basil is good for restoring balance.  

 It has been used to relieve headaches, menstrual pain, mild depression, treat fevers, colds, bacterial infections and more.  I love it in a soup, salad, or my pumpkin seed pesto that is in the Candida FreeCookbook.   

One very nice tidbit about basil is that mosquitoes do not like it.  It’s a repellant you can plant, so if you are creating your garden right now, include some basil.  You could even put it in your window boxes around your home.  Enjoy it year round.
