THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

Holy Basil and the Change in the Weather

The weather has changed in south queesland and after 5 years of drought, we now have green green grasss, insects and damp damp damp. and much colder weather, it is 10 to 15 degrees cooler, very suddenly. I have gone from 45 degrees in the day and 40 at night to 25 to 30 degrees celcius in the last 2 weeks. This means there are parasites, bacteria and protozoa multiplying. .
One of the great plants to grow and use in the food in these circumstances is Holy Basil ( Ocimum sanctum / O tenuiflorum).It is important to get this species, as its detoxification properties are greater!!! You can buy this at plant shops, or on line through All Rare Herbs at Margate, You can buy tea in the health food shops,and you can grow it grow grow it in this weather, a couple of leraves in 1/4 cup of hot water will make enough tea to add daily to a 15 kg pets food, It can be put on dry food,or mixed with fresh. You can grate it and use a grated teaspoon for a 15 kg animal in the food. , and put it in bone broth!!! It is antibacterial , antiparasitic, anti protozoan and has antioxidants and the ability to detoxify the gut. It is also great as a tea put in bath water or directly in a pet after being bittne by mosies or other insects.
