Basil is widely used in Far Eastern medicine in the Ayurvedic tradition, where it is called tulsi. It is used for respiratory problems such as bronchitis, coughs, colds, asthma, flu and emphysema but is also used as an antidote to poisonous insect or snake bites. It has also been used against epidemics and fever, such as malaria.

It improves blood circulation and the digestive system, and in China it is used for stomach and kidney ailments. In the West, it is considered a cooling herb and is used for rheumatic pain, irritable skin conditions and for those of a nervous disposition.
