This is from net.. grow Chamomile near your Holy Basil plants to encourage its success. Called the "queen of herbs" in India,holy basil smells like double-bubble gum and tastes surprisingly candied.

Thanks @gjones! The old man at the nursery swore this was cinnamon basil...I knew it was not, this has a very unique smell!

I swear this #basil smells like bublegum! I bought it from a nursery because of its unusual smell, the caretaker said it was cinnamon basil... anyone know a hybrid maybe????
