The Benefits of Basil

Most of us associate basil with a hearty bowl of spaghetti Bolognese, but outside of the kitchen, this humble herb has been used for centuries to treat a range of common ailments.

A native of Asia, basil has a long history of use in Ayurveda, the traditional health system of India, for the treatment of coughs, colds and other respiratory problems.

August seems to be busy month no matter who you are or what you do. Parents have children off school and lots of people take their holiday either flying off abroad, staying closer to home or even staying at home (staycation). It has been, so far, very busy.

So I feel like I’ve had a bit of a transitioning period lately. Completing my courses after 9 months of hard work and exams, and then realising I actually need, and would like to, put my new found skills of Reflexology and Aromatherapy into practice.
