The Benefits of Basil

Basil is a wonderful herb to use in your cooking. It’s often added to Italian food, soups, sandwiches, or pesto, and comes in a variety of flavors such as lemon and cinnamon basil.

It is a great plant to be grown indoors or out. I like to keep a small plant by my kitchen window and snip a few leaves to add to food.

It is one of the healthiest herbs and has so many benefits:

•Vitamin K - good for blood clotting •Vitamin A - may help prevent cholesterol in the blood •Contains iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and potassium •Has antibacterial properties •Anti-inflammatory •Helps rheumatoid arthritis

You can dry the leaves, freeze them whole, or chop them, add oil, and freeze in ice cube trays.
