Basil means many things to many civilizations. A sacred herb of India, basil is sometimes grown in Hindu homes as an emblem of happiness. It is also a symbol of love and faithfulness in both India and Italy, and accepting a sprig of basil in Romania signals engagement. In Haiti, basil is associated with a voodoo love goddess. But the herb is more than simply a symbol of love. In ancient Rome, basil was known as “basiliscus” for the feared basilisk, a dragon that could kill with a look. Eating basil protected from the basilisk and cured poison.
