Mixed in a bath with Love Herbs (such as Red Clover, Rose Buds, Catnip, Gentian, Damiana, Lavender, Cubebs, and Juniper Berries), it increases Affection in the Family. BASIL also Protects from Evil. Mix with Rosemary and Rue for a Cleansing and Protective bath. Dried BASIL is sprinkled on the kitchen floor and swept out the door because "Evil can't stay where BASIL has been."
