Benefits of Sweet Basil

What is the herb basil good for? Scientific studies show that Ocimum basilicum has some of the following positive effects:

Anti-inflammatory: Basil contains powerful essential oils, including eugenol, citronellol and linalool. Findings from studies indicate that these enzyme-inhibiting oils help lower inflammation, which is at the root of most diseases like heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel conditions

Antioxidant: This herb contains flavonoid antioxidants, such as orientin and viceninare, which help protect white blood cells responsible for immune function, as well as cellular structures where DNA is stored.

Anti-stress solution:  This herb is considered an antidepressant by some since it can positively impact brain function within the adrenal cortex, helping stimulate neurotransmitters that regulate the hormones responsible for making us happy and energetic 

Immune-booster: Studies show that basil has strong potential to act as a natural adaptogen, an herbal medicine that helps the body adapt to stress and normalize the harmful effects of stressors.

    Pristine, fresh, and flavourful, with big leaves just like in the picture. Perfect for pesto.

  2. Rebecca Parama

    Amazing fresh basil. Incredible smell and very flavorful. Lasts well on the counter because it is so incredibly fresh!

  3. Lindsay Mandry

    The best basil. So fresh. The leaves are huge, full, fragrant, and never any wilted or browning leaves like you’d get from grocery store basil.
