Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is an aromatic, annual herb, 0.3-0.5 metres tall. The plant is almost hairless. The leaves are ovate, often puckered, flowers white or pink, and fruits have four small nutlets, which are mucilaginous when wet. Basil is used to flavour soups and sauces and is the main ingredient of pesto sauce. The leaves can be eaten as a salad. Basil is also used in perfumery, soap-making, and to flavour liqueurs. The seeds are edible, and when soaked in water become mucilaginous.

In parts of the Mediterranean they are made into a refreshing drink known as cherbet tokhum. Basil is widely used in systems of traditional medicine, for treating digestive system disorders, such as stomach ache, kidney complaints, and infections. The leaves are used to make an insecticide that can protect stored crops from beetle damage.
