There are two aspects to this assignment: 1) identifying faulty arguments in the literature, and 2) Creating faulty arguments to sell your product”

First: You will be re-using your references from your research in Part 1. You will be searching for examples of the faulty arguments and poor reasoning types you studied in the Faulty Arguments PowerPoint.
Introduction: Make sure you write an introductory paragraph to explain what you are doing with citing faulty arguments including an explanation of what constitutes a faulty argument.
Find four different examples of faulty arguments from four different references you used in Part 1. Cite the original source in quotations and state exactly WHY you think the reasoning is poor. All the citations should be about the same plant you studied in Part 1. Label them 1-4 like the example below:
Example: Research by Exegesis: I found passages in the Bible verses urging people to use the holy herb ‘senna’. “Cassia (senna) Exodus 30:23-24 ?The bark ofthis tree from the laurel family is ground to produce a fine spice. The LORD gave Moses a recipefor creating an aromatic oil to be used in anointing the tabernacle and priests.”
See further examples in this Module.
Part 2: Now write a short advertisement for your herb using at least two faulty arguments. Label them in parentheses in red text.
Example: Please try my peppermint tea. It will work wonders for your stomach ache. Everyone I know has tried it (bandwagon) and they are all satisfied. Besides, it is really true that phamacies are too expensive (non sequiter). Even my chemistry professor says it works! (appeal to authority)

Basil is a herb of the aromatic type from the genus Ocimum that is categorized under the mint family (Hiltunen, & Holm, 2003). The herb is of different varieties and the most common is the O.basilicum popular in cooking. This paper explores the common uses of Basil as well as the medical application, exploring the chemical components and impact centers within the human metabolism system.
Common Uses
The most popular use of Basil is in culinary applications. They provide excellent aroma, especially of the Basil Pesto type. When dried up, Basil blends with almost all types of cooking and is experimented upon in many global cultures. The medicinal application works well with calming an irritable stomach. This is the main reason it is used as an ingredient in cooking. Basil handles indigestion and eases the pressure from overeating. The other medicinal value is the soothing of sore throats, coughing and colds. Some traditional cultures chew on the fresh leaves or dry the same and mix with tea. Some cultures and populations use the dry basil leaves during facial steaming process to control headaches. The actual process involves mixing boiling water with a tablespoon of dried basil leaves. The patient then bends over the pot to inhale the steam as well as have the same massage the face as the head is covered by a towel/ cloth to contain the vapour. The patient can hold still for about 5 to 10 minutes until the throbbing begins to decline. Likewise, Basil is an effective stress reliever when mixed with bathing water thus an individual feels relaxed after long bathing stints. Basil is also being investigated for its antibiotic properties based on instances of resistance to antibiotic infections when used especially; Enterococcus, Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas (Hiltunen, & Holm, 2003). Based on this antibacterial property, Basil oil treats infections within the ears. The same acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever when an individual is stung or bitten. An individual can simply chew some Basil leaves and apply on the affected area. The Basil juice is able to gradually suck out the venom. Recent studies have indicated the ability for dry basil to contain blood sugar levels as it is consumed through hot beverages (Hiltunen, & Holm, 2003).
