Basil for Respiratory Releif
Basil provides great relief from respiratory ailments and diseases. Crush the organic dried herb to a fine powder and sniff. Drying the leaves increases their essential oil content, thereby strengthening their antibacterial benefit. You can use a food processor to get the consistency to a fine powder. You can also wrap the powder in a cloth and breathe from it. Another great way is to pick up the basil essential oil which can also be sniffed, or dropped onto a hot wash cloth and breathed in.
