One of the most common herbs you could use for your health is basil. It is a common herb that is used in many Italian dishes and it has quite a fragrant scent as well. In addition to being flavorful and great smelling, basil is known as being a cleansing agent for the kidneys and it can help to prevent kidney stones from branching off and lodging in the urinary tubes. If you are at risk for kidney stones, consider having more basil. You can blend one teaspoon of basil with a little honey and water for a refreshing treat and make sure to repeat this daily for as long as needed.
