Sweet Basil

I found this plant.  My home helper forgotten all about this plant.  This is the temu lawak plant.  I see this plant on a skincare product from Indonesia.

You can see that one of the leaves has been picked on.  We were trying to figure out what it was by sniffing on the bits of leaves 😛

I do not know for sure what temu lawak is for or what is it’s medicinal properties.  So, I googled for temu lawak … found one explanation on Indonesia Wikipedia.
