According to, basil tea helps with diabetes, arthritis, kidney stones, relieves headaches is a natural pain killer, supports oral health, immune system, respiratory health, and healthy skin.
In addition, basil contains iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, vitamin C and potassium.  So drinking a cup of basil tea not only induces relaxation, but is also a healthy alternative.

It's also easy to grow your own basil plant at home.  Doing so will provide you with ample basil to make regular cups of tea.  It will also serve as a reminder that when those leaves need to be harvested, then that's time you need to prepare basil tea.

Preparing Homemade basil tea has never been so easy.

  • 4 - 5 basil leaves
  • 1 cup hot water (250mg)
  • honey
  1. Cut 4 - 5 basil leaves from the stalk and chop in to smaller sizes to unleash the flavor.
  2. Place chopped basil leaves in a tea steeper or infuser.  (Since we're just making one cup, we have our cute koala tea steeper placed inside a cup.
  3. Boil water and pour the hot water in the cup with the steeper.
  4. Add honey to sweeten.
  5. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes.

And that's it!  You have yourself a refreshing cup of fresh homemade basil tea.
