Basil - cut, organic

Herbs: Basil - Cut, Organically Grown

Common Names: Basil (Egyptian)
Latin Name: Ocimum Basilicum
Origin: Egypt

Short Description:

Basil has antibacterial, antiviral and digestive aid properties, but it is best known for its flavorful taste. Great in spaghetti, soup, pizza and more.

This highly aromatic sweet herb has several medicinal uses. It is also administered as a flavoring in food and sauces, dried leaves or an infusion.

From our Reading and/or Experience:

  • Basil is aromatic with carminative and cooling properties. The part of the plant that is above the ground is used medicinally.
  • We use basil often in cooking or herbal combinations. Basil can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
  • As is the case with most herbs, basil should be stored in a dark, dry and cool place.

I love your website... Thank you for all your help. I love my herb books, and headed off an ear infection (my four year old) with a clove of garlic. Within 15 minutes, she was pain free whereas she had been holding her ear in horrible pain. Thanks again.
