Posted on : 27-06-2019 | By : georginesaves | In : Tip of the day

There’s a good chance during the Summer you may have a basil plant growing or some fresh cut basil in your refrigerator. This delightful plant can double-duty as a bug bite salve in addition to making your favorite recipes tastier! If you have a bite, rub a fresh basil leaf between your fingers to release the oils. Dab these on the affected area and let sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse off. There are cooling compounds in this herb that will reduce discomfort and its anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties prevent infection!
