Common Name: Basil (Egyptian)

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.
