ABOUT BASIL TINCTURE
Basil Tincture is an impressive antioxidative agent that is prepared from the homegrown Basil from the Mayernik Kitchen. Early in the morning when basil is juiciest and at the peak of its chemical content, it is harvested and diligently dried to preserve its signature color, taste, and aroma. Basil is extracted with grain alcohol (50%) for the maintenance of phytochemical equilibrium.
Basil tincture has antioxidant and adaptogenic properties which ultimately makes it anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-arthritic. It can also treat coagulation of blood, fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite, stomach spasms, flatulence, respiratory tract infections, viral infections, bacterial infections, fungal infections, and even nervous system disorders.
The basil plant is said to have been in cultivation for 5,000 years. The plant is believed to have originated in India, but some reports say that the plant had actually originated from a region farther east from India in a time period as far back as 807 A.D. These reports state that the basil plant was grown in the Hunan region of Ancient China. After some time, the plant migrated to western regions where it was cultivated rapidly and is still being cultivated in modern times.
Through the course of history, the plant was believed to possess powers and was used as believed to give strength to its users. It was consumed during religious fasting and was used an antidote for religious fasting. In ancient Greece, the plant was used in mourning processes as the symbol of mourning. The ancient Egyptians also used the basil plant in embalming processes. Indians used the plant as a means of protection by planting it around their temples and in places of burials to protect the dead into the afterlife.
There were also several misconceptions associated with the plant. In medieval times, it was believed to be essential for cheering the spirit and serving as a tension reliever. In the same period, doctors also considered it poisonous. The plant was introduced to the western world in the 16th century when it was taken to Britain and then to North America in later years. It was naturalized in these regions and is grown widely in the Mediterranean region and in parts of America till today.
