Sweet basil has a strong clove-like scent.   The warm, spicy taste of this herb combines well with garlic and tomatoes and is found in most Italian recipes.  
       
Folk remedies have used sweet basil to aid digestion and relieve flatulence and this claim has been upheld by modern pharmacology.  Research shows that extracts of the plant inhibit organisms that cause dysentery.
