Requested by chefs and fans – like my nephew pictured here picking blackberries – this crisp, clean, earthy basil is hand-cut and added to the freshest blackberries – near bursting with their juices.

So proud! I harvested Melissa and Aloe from my herb garden alongside with honey and wax from my bee hives to make my very first batch of lip balm. I love the results!
