The highly fragrant leaves of the basil plant owe its aroma to the unique health-protecting effects of basil's family of flavonoids and volatile oils. These oils are strongly antiseptic, and have shown the ability to induce antibiotic actions against pathogenic drug-resistant bacteria.

Basil's flavonoids protect cellular DNA from damage resulting from radiation, oxidation, and the effects of GMO ingredients found in today's food supply. It's volatile oils are able to inhibit an enzyme in the body called cyclooxygenase (COX), the same enzyme which is the target of anti-inflammatory medications including aspirin and ibuprofen.

Coriander oil has been shown to be toxic to a broad range of harmful bacteria. Its use in foods and in clinical agents could prevent food-borne illnesses and even treat antibiotic-resistant infections, according to the authors of a study published in the Journal of Medical Microbiology.

The researchers from the University of Beira Interior in Portugal tested coriander oil against 12 bacterial strains, including Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, Bacillus cereus and meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Of the tested strains, all showed reduced growth, and most were killed, by solutions containing 1.6% coriander oil or less.
