This “herb infusion” is a no brainer as most of you might have fresh basil sitting on the windowsill.
Basil’s oils provide antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Basil water can help alleviate feelings of fullness and sooth indigestion. The ultimate benefit though, it tastes amazing! I love to drink it especially on hot summer days.
Basil Detox Water
You need a 1-quart pitcher with very cold water and 12 plucked, large basil leaves. Fold the leaves 1- 2 times to activate its flavors and add them to the water. Let the drink sit in your fridge for at least 1/2 an hour. Serve it with ice cubes.
