INTRODUCTION: Holy Basil is well known for its sweet aroma and the fresh, delicious flavor that it lends to food. Holy Basil is traditionally used to spice up pasta, soups and sauces. It is the key ingredient of pesto sauce, where it is mixed with hard cheese, pine nuts, and olive oil. As a flavoring agent, holy basil is best added at the end of cooking as the intense heat will quickly deteriorate its characteristic taste and aroma. In addition to its culinary uses, basil is used to add fragrance to perfumes, soaps, shampoos, and other body care products.
