Basil produces its essential oils in glands in its leaves that have to be activated by UV-B rays from the sun; the best quality basil is grown in hot, sunny climates.

Chemical free from Home Farm Herbery, our dried basil is grown in our own hot, sunny part of Kentucky.

Basil is the ultimate complement to tomatoes, and also pairs beautifully with onions, garlic, and olives.

Basil stimulates the appetite and helps curb flatulence, perhaps another reason why it works so well with garlic. Basil tea is said to help with dysentery, nausea, and stomach distress due to gas.

For the most intense flavor, basil should be added at the end of the cooking process. Prolonged heat will cause basil's volatile oils to dissipate.

Ground with garlic and olive oil into a paste, basil is a prime ingredient in pistou, a Mediterranean specialty.

Most other herbs tend to overpower basil's flavor and aroma, but oregano is one that is most often used in conjunction with basil. Other good combinations include summer savory, rosemary, and sage.

Basil has a unique aroma because of the many constituents of its essential oil. The oil contains 1, 8-cineol, citral, eugenol, linalool, methyl chavicol, methyl cinnamate in relatively large quantities and bisabolene, camphor, cryophyllene, geraniol, and ocimene in smaller quantities influencing taste and action in the body.
