Spice Route Basil - the kitchen herb
Ocimum Basilicum

Basil is of different types, however the most popular culinary variety is the sweet basil, with its refreshing clove and anise-like aroma. They grow in most climatic conditions and are used widely in Mediterranean, North American, Asian and Australian cuisines.

Basil from our farms are harvested before they start flowering and are dried as soon as they are picked, using a unique process to retain the volatile oils and clove-like aroma.

BasilBasil originated in India where it is, till date, regarded as the sacred herb. It is widely grown as a kitchen herb and is used as a seasoning for pizzas, spaghetti sauce, soups, dressings and salads. In many countries, it is used as an ingredient in bouquet garni.
