I bought it and thought it was basil because it was labeled that. I can break the leaf and it smells more like kerosene

    Maybe a lavender hybrid. According to sources the species spike lavender (Lavendula latifolia)has a camphor/menthol scent. I’m guessing yours could be a cross with L. latifolia as one of the parents (?). Flowers are needed to confirm or rule out this speculation. If this isn’t lavender, make new post with flower’s photo. For now check out these included links for more information on lavender species & cultivars. Best wishes!
