The following information is found on the left-hand side of this card, while the right side is BLANK for your own greeting

Basil – also known as St. Joseph’s Wort, Holy Basil,
or “King of Herbs”

History: Basil, which is native to Asia, and more specifically India has been around for thousands of years and has been linked closely with folklore and mythology, mostly concerning the relationship of the household and Love. Basil was also used by the Greek and English royalty for their baths, and medicine.

Nutrition and Healing: One of the primary medicinal uses of basil comes from BCP, or (E)-beta-caryophyllene, a natural anti-inflammatory compound also found in oregano and medicinal cannabis. BCP found in basil may offer an alternative to medical marijuana, because it offers the same anti-inflammatory effects without the mental and neurological side-effects . BCP in basil is believed to combat bowel inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis. Studies also show that it has anti-cancer capabilities when used in its full, unaltered form, fresh, with live enzymes. In addition, basil has anti bacterial qualities and is great for cuts and bruises. Just crush and place under a bandage and see for yourself!

Basil likes warm weather and a lot of sun. In temperate areas, early summer is sufficient to plant outside. You can also pot your basil and enjoy it all winter long indoors. Be sure to break off brown leaves and keep your plant looking and smelling beautiful.

Great Idea: Use basil in your iced tea. Try it out and see!
