It was weird. I used up all my collard greens and the callaloo had to have a pesticide on it so I didn't want to touch it.

I figured I would juice basil today.

I juiced it and felt so peaceful like I took a drug. I thought wow, that was weird.

I looked it up and sure enough it is used for anxiety and depression .

Tulsi Tea is made from Basil. I was supposed to start drinking it four years ago. I have some in the cupboard somewhere.

That would probably be some very relaxing tea.

One year I grew Holy Basil, Thai Basil and Lemon Basil.

They were all really cool.

And different...

Does it taste like lemon, as the name implies?

Oh yes; sorry, I did Not see this!

Yes, it has a lemon flavour, the aroma is Divine. It looks a lot like the species, but with a; well, a more lemon-coloured leaf, very succulent.

All three are completely different.

Let me think, the Holy Basil was the Tulsi Tea one, and the Thai Basil was the sort of anise flavoured one used in some Thai dishes.

All very good!

I wrote down a list of essential oils that are good for hormonal balance in the summer. I noticed that basil was one of them.
