Basil (Ocimum basilicum) - so called from Basilis - 'King' in Greek - does indeed have a very royal aroma and is a herb fit for Kings.

Cretan Basil is potent and delicious. Basil can be used in all kinds of savoury dishes and is of course a great herb for pesto. We use it fresh or dried to make pesto (see our reel 'Hey Pesto!' on Instagram).

Basil also has health benefits; it contains eugenol which blocks calcium channels and magnesium; it helps to  lower  blood pressure, prevent heart disease reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. 

All our herbs are air dried in the shade to preserve their flavour. Check out our other Cretan herbs which include bay leaves, dittany,  mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme and lavender. Soil Association licence number 30695.
