Ka-prow (Holy Basil) It dispels gas, and helps relieve stomach pain and colic. It lessens nausea and vomiting beside inducing sweating. Holy Basil contains vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, phosphorus, iron, calcium and beta-carotene. Holy Basil leaves are often used in curries and many stir-fried dishes. They can be used fresh or crisply fried and eaten as a condiment to the dish.

Ho-ra-pha (Sweet Basil) It helps with digestion and relieves abdominal pain, colic and indigestion. It contains vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin C, calcium, iron, fibre, phosphorus and beta-carotene.
