There are lots of fun facts about basil:
Basil is versatile. It can be used fresh, but it can also be used in its dry form. It can be used in both savory and sweet dishes.
In folk medicine, the use of basil is quite popular. Basil tea is often useful, and it’s used to treat everything from constipation and stomach cramps to anxiety and depression.
Basil contains certain chemicals that insects don’t like (although they don’t affect humans). In particular, mosquitoes don’t like basil. So if there’s one herb you want nearby in the heat of the summer, it’s basil.

Why Organic products?… Always try to use Organic products to avoid high pesticide residue on your food. Certified Organic means NO… GMO’s, synthetic pesticides, roundup herbicides, hexane, sewage sludge, growth-promoting antibiotics or ractopamine drug residues. Keep you and your family safe, buy Organic!
When purchasing a packaged ingredient…
It’s important to look for CERTIFIED LOGOS to guarantee that the products come from responsible sources;
Please Note: It’s best to have seasonings that are non-ETO. What is this? No Irradiation or ETO — Frontier does not sell any products or use any ingredients that have been sterilized by irradiation or ethylene oxide (ETO). They utilize safe and effective steam sterilization to preserve product quality. In my research, I found it’s important to find companies that sell spices and seasonings not to use ETO. Don’t be afraid to ask. It’s your health we are dealing with. FYI: Can organic spices be irradiated? Nope. How about treated with ethylene oxide? Nope. The only allowable method for USDA certified organic is steam sterilization. Learn more about this from superfoodly.
I feel good purchasing products and supporting companies that are; Fair-Trade Certified™
