Basil tends to be one of the most popular herbs to grow during the warm summer months. When planning out my raised-bed garden this year, I made sure to reserve space for multiple basil plants. It has a variety of culinary uses and can also be used in homemade natural cleaning products like this All-Purpose Cleaner.
You may be surprised to learn about the amazing health benefits of basil! Not only does it have anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, but is also said to help fight depression and promote a healthy cardiovascular system.
