A common form of basil in Southeast Asia, its ancestral home, but less known here in America, Holy Basil has a strong camphor scent. The leaves are less shiny that Italian and Greek types and have red to purple undertones. When combined with cilantro and lemongrass it creates a unique aroma and flavor that is classically Southeast Asian. It is used not only in the kitchen but also in potpourri where its ample scent lingers to enchant. The plants are tall and vigorous, though no more frost hardy than other basils.
