Basil Oil (Ocimum basilicum) Fun fact: In Italy, basil
is regarded as a sign of love. Believed by Hindus to be a
passport to heaven, and by one Greek author to exist only to
drive men insane, basil has had quite the reputation throughout
history. However, basil is most associated with food, where it
is used as an herb to punch up dishes because of its aromatic,
mildly pungent flavor. Basil is a favorite among Italian cooks,
and can be found in a variety of native dishes. Though many
people associate basil with Italy, it is actually native to
India and Iran. In India, basil was considered sacred. In fact,
the very name comes from the Greek word basileus meaning "king."
Currently, there are over 150 varieties of basil, however the
variety named ociumum basilicum is most used in aromatherapy.
