I think that I might start feeding this to Basil on a regular basis if I can grow enough. I have decided I will have to start giving him some sort of supplement to help with his respiratory problem so may try this first.
See my herb blog for the meanings of these.

Leaves and flowering tops.
Internally used for respiratory problems, coughs and sore throats. Also good for digestive problems, indigestion or wind colic.
Externally it can be used as an ointment for swellings and warts.
30 - 40gms added to feed daily.
