African basil brew
This basic based brew helps to reduce fever. Boiling leaves with some cardamom (close to alligator pepper) in about two quarts of water, then mixed with a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of milk, brings down temperature. An extract of basil leaves in fresh water should be given every 2 to 3 hours; between doses you can give sips of cold water. This method is especially effective for reducing fevers in children
