Aphrodisiac: Basil

Standard

Basil was once (and in some cultures still is) considered among the earth’s most noble and sacred plants. The plant is said to have originated in Asia, but has been used extensively in Europe. The Greeks called the herb “basilkohn” which means royal. In Roman times, basil was a symbol of love, and was sometimes called “l’herbe royale”.

Basil not only makes the meals smell and taste better, but it also has a lot of beneficial effects on human body. Basil has a fantastic

aroma which is said to have an aphrodisiac effect and is also very stimulating. Basil’s leaves contain a variety of libido lifting nutrients. It is considered a good source of Vitamin A, beta-­‐carotene, magnesium, potassium and Vitamin C.

There are over 50 varieties of basil around the world. It is also sold both fresh and dried.

Tip: You can readily find Basil sold already planted in a pot. You should buy one of those and have fresh basil readily available for you.
