Basil (Ocimum bascilicum)
Use: Leaves, Flowers. Varieties: Sweet, Greek, Holy, Lemon, Thai, and Lime. Everyone is familiar with Basil as a culinary staple, but herbalists also recommend drinking it as a tea for nausea, gas pains and dysentary. A bushy, easily grown annual, basil is an excellent plant for growing indoors during the winter months. It prefers well-drained soil, high in nutrients. Basil, like most aromatic herbs, is at its most potent just as the flowers are beginning.
