Learn to root basil and enjoy health and skin benefits

by Kelli P May 23, 2016

When you're trying to cook healthier recipes, one of the best ways to enhance the flavors and nutrition of the dishes you're making is with fresh herbs. Basil is one of our favorites!  Not only is it great to cook with but has numerous health and skin benefits.

Fresh basil is a great herb for the skin because it's loaded with essential nutrients including vitamins A, C and K, as well as manganese, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fats. 

Fresh basil can also help with acne! Here's a recipe you can make at home to treat acne.

Take 20-30 basil leaves-grind in a bowl, use a wooden spoon (or sub with a mortar and pestle) and crush the fresh basil leaves so that the natural oils are released. 

Add 2 cups of boiling water to the bowl. Allow to steep for around 10-15 minutes, then strain to remove any excess leaves. Store the basil water in a glass container and use morning and evening with a cotton pad, applied to the face, after washing. No need to rinse off, follow with a serum or moisturizer.

Learn how to make at least four basil plants from one living basil container purchased at the grocery store.  Watch our video!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
