Basil is a common name for the culinary herb Ocimum basilicum. The word comes from the Greek word basileus, which means “King”. Indeed, basil is considered the “King of herbs” and plays an important role in both Italian and Asian cuisine. Basil is known to contain high concentrations of essential oils and potent antioxidants with anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-viral and anti-microbial properties.
