Basil tea is helpful for when you have nausea and flatulence. The magic ingredient is basil. Basil has been considered to be ‘The Oldest Herb’. It has been used for health reasons and for its distinct flavour which is delicious. It is one of my favorite herbs to use in my kitchen.
- Chop the basil into small pieces.
- Bring the water to a boil and then turn off the heat.
- Put the basil into the water and let it steep for five minutes.
- Strain out the leaves.

To Get More Basil Into You, Try These Recipes
I am a great fan of basil as you will find it in many recipes on my site.
Delicious Vegan Pesto – This is both fresh and raw and delicious. I love this vegan pesto without the cheese; it tastes like the real thing, only better to me! Toss with pasta or serve with bread or crackers for an appetizer.
Easy Peasy Green Pea Soup is Especially Delicious – This green pea soup really is yummy and it is a super easy soup to make. Hearing me say that frozen peas taste good is amazing; as I don’t even like to eat frozen peas. But this creamy green pea soup is really delicious and within a week I had it twice!
Tasty Tempeh Burgers are Vegan and Gluten-Free – These tempeh burgers are tasty and a very good source of protein for dinner. They have all the health benefits with B12. You can make them into burgers with buns or what I do is have them with a salad or steamed vegetables.
Vegan Hemp Heart Pesto is Nut Free and Delicious – This hemp heart pesto is vegan, nut-free and raw. It makes lunch or dinner extra delicious. Most pestos have cheese in them which doesn’t work for those of us who eat dairy-free. I always make my pestos without the cheese. For some, it is best not to eat lots of nuts and this hemp heart pesto is perfect as the hemp hearts add the flavour and texture without the nuts.
Vegan Zucchini Pesto – This zucchini pesto is lighter than the regular pesto as it has less oil and adds a refreshing zest of zucchini to your pasta. Also, I prefer not to use cheese and the nutritional yeast gives it a delicious flavour.
