We were out early this morning- dew still on the leaves- sun just rising. We were checking on the Holy Basil in our small organic garden with a view of the mountains here in Asheville- ( happy to help you find your garden land) - Gardening Asheville-Style is sure to bring relief from stress...in more ways than one.
RESEARCH- Medical News today- We know that Holy Basil can help the body to adapt to and cope with stress by reducing the stress hormone cortisol in the blood stream. It is also said to rejuvenate adrenal glands. This is backed up by research.
Good news for inflammatory wellness challenges such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases- "extracts of O. tenuiflorm (Holy Basil) were shown to reduce swelling by up to 73%, 24 hours after treatment". We gathered enough Holy Basil to add to Barbara Kingsolver's "Family Secret Tomato Sauce" recipe (modified by me) - and then climbed the hill to the kitchen.
