Can I grow Basil from seed?

Basil Oil

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, firmly packed
1 cup olive oil

Rinse basil under cold running water, then immerse in
boiling water for about 20-30 seconds. Immediately
plunge into ice water, then dry thoroughly.

Puree basil and oil in blender or processor. Pour
into a sterilized glass container that just fits its
contents. Cover and refrigerate 1 day.

This oil will cloud and may even congeal. Let sit
at room temperature until it clears again, then strain.

Pour this strained oil into a freshly sterilized glass
jar or bottle, cover tightly and refrigerate. Use
within one week.

Drizzle this oil over homemade pizzas, or add to the
dough while preparing it for a very tasty crust. Use
this oil to replace plain olive oil in just about any
recipe.
