Basil has amazing purifying properties. It helps your skin cells to remain nourished and glowing and also prevents the development of acne and blemishes on the skin. It is also good for reducing itchiness of the scalp and hair fall.

Who doesn’t love pre-packed meals? They are super saviors when it comes to saving time, are easy to make at the end of a busy work day, and rarely need any culinary talent, while being delicious.
