Known as tulsi in India, it is not used as a culinary herb, but is thought to have great medicinal value and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses.

There are many rituals and beliefs associated with basil, which is native to Africa and Asia. The ancient Egyptians believed that it would open the gates of heaven to a dying person, and the Hindus use Basil sprigs to protect the dead from evil while in transition between lives.
