Basil originated in India, where it was regarded as a sacred herb. The name comes from the Greek basileus meaning 'king.' Once people were no longer fearful of this herb, it was said to be "fit for a king's house." In Haiti basil is thought to belong to the pagan love goddess Erzulie, and in Italy it has been regarded as a sign of love.
Wisps, puffs and toxic fragrances!
is that we feel we must layer our homes and bodies in scents? As
studies have shown indoor air now tests to be considerably more toxic
than the air outside. Most air freshener products are synthetic
manifestations of chemical compounds, as are many fragrant candles. Now
we must watch spellbound as they puff their toxins into our homes in
the name of cleanliness!!!
What are we trying
to cover up? Better yet, get a diffuser and therapeutic grade essential
oils and breathe nature's best rather than science's attempt at
duplicating the sweet smells of the Earth.
till next time keep breathing!!
