Basil: Aromatherapy for capitalism
publication date: Feb 1, 2004
Basil, if you believe what is written in books of herb lore, is as good for attracting lovers as it is for warding off flies. Steeped a bit in hot water,basil makes an excellent herbal tisane with curative properties. And, of course, basil is the key ingredient in rich, luscious pestos. So I grow basil - lots of it - and sell it at the farmers' market to folks who need good loving, good health, and a good meal. As for me, I need a good income and I've found that basil can be key in boosting my farm's market receipts.
