Basil is a plant of the Lamiaceae known for its culinary properties as a seasoning. Endemic to Asia, basil was a common ingredient of Indian medicine, and a common offering to the god Krishna. It was brought to the Mediterranean in the XV century, and now grows in Cyprus, Italy, and Southern France. Basil buds and leaves emit an uplifting perfume that sets palates alive.
