In Africa, where it's used more medicinally, many people use the plant's leaves to relieve water retention, high blood pressure, fevers, coughs and digestive system problems. Fresh and sweet, Basil's aroma is very similar to that of traditional Italian cooking. Many people use it as a digestive aid and to provide relief to aching or cramping muscles.
