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! I've always hated relying on "allopathic" medicine. But if a doctor prescribed say, an antibiotic for my child's eye infection, even though I didn't like the possible long-term effects of the antibiotics, I always felt like I better go ahead and give it to him so I wouldn't risk damaging his eye, just because I didn't know what else to do. I am so happy I can now work toward building up my own knowledge so I can be responsible for the health of my own family.

I thought using herbs was some mysterious science and that a person would have to pay a lot of money to a supposed natural doctor whom they weren't sure if they could trust if they wanted to know how to use herbs. So, thank you!
