Basil is one of the most widely recognized herbs in the world, by scent or appearance. This member of the mint family is excellent fresh or dried in a variety of foods, especially tomato-based dishes. Egyptian basil is particularly good to use for making infused culinary oils.

Basil (Egyptian) c/s, 1/4 lb

  • Common basil, sometimes called Saint Joseph's Wort, is widely cultivated in Egypt. This herb offers the same great taste as European sweet basil grown in the U.S., but tends to be more robust with minty undertones.

    The dried herb is edible but bitter, and may be added to teas, salads and soups. It can also be infused in oil or tinctured and added to lotions, creams, soaps, ointments, facial toners and perfumes.
