How crisp and refreshing! Splash up some ice tea, or even celebrate summer with a mojito! Mint was also used as a medicinal herb to treat stomachaches and chest pains, and even as a sleeping aid, and is still used for the same purposes today.


2. Basil

The perfect way to liven up your dinner plate! While basil is prominently used in Italian cuisine, it also provides an excellent amount of vitamin K, which helps with blood clotting.


3. Parsley
