Basil has a rich and fanciful history. It had been considered "royale" to the French, a sign of love to the Italians, and a sacred herb in India. This plant is an important Ayurvedic herb, and is grown near Indian houses - it is believed to purify air by discharging negative ions. The plant is also believed to possess spiritual powers. It is one of the two most sacred plants in India. In the first century A.D., Roman naturalist Pliny reported that Basil relieves flatulence, which had been subsequently proven true. In the Far East, the herb had been used as a cough medicine. Certified Organic.
