Homemade herb oil for chronic kidney disease

It consists of macerating the previous oil in aromatic plants, such as basil, rosemary, thyme, turmeric and other spices, to flavor the dishes.

Normally aromatic herbs can not be consumed in advanced stages because they are very rich in potassium.

If there is no restriction of potassium, you can take these plants, very sparingly.
