Short History of Basil:

Basil is the common name of an aromatic plant of the mint family. The term basil is used for the scented leaves of this plant, popularly used as a herb for culinary purposes, or the term is used even more specifically for the seasoning prepared from the dried leaves. Basil has a long history of use, being known as the “royal herb’ in ancient Greece, and employed in various cultures not only for culinary but also medicinal and religious use. Basil is extremely versatile as a culinary herb. It offers a wide variety of diverse flavors and scents, including clove, citrus, camphor, licorice, and cinnamon, thanks to variable amounts of different oils in its different cultivars.
