Natural Weight Loss? Drink Your Basil Seed Tea?

I had a bumper crop of sweet basil this summer and have been staring at a bowl of the dried herb for over a month. The reason I left it sitting there was because I thought the seeds might be bitter and didn’t know if I should separate them from the leaf before I stored it for my spice cabinet. Today I finally got around to doing a bit of research about the seeds and I see more than one source recommends basil seeds for weight loss. Are you kidding me? And I was going to throw them out? Could it be that simple? I doubt it but you can be sure I’ll save them and see if I enjoy the Thai style of basil seed tea that’s so popular within that culture.
