Basil is also known as Thai basil or sweet basil. Basil is predominantly used in Mediterranean cooking as a seasoning for tomato-based dishes, meat, fish, poultry and seafood. Fresh basil has a very aromatic flavour, although it loses some of its aroma when it is dried. The essential oils found in basil are used in the cosmetics industry for producing fragrances.
