Sacred Basil - Art Seed Packs

$5

Temperate Tulsi, also sold by some as "Kapoor" Tulsi. Tulsi, considered a sacred plant in the Hindu religion, has been cultivated for at least 3,000 years. Known as the Incomparable One, Queen of the Herbs, and Elixir of Life, the scent, as well as preparations of the herb, have been used to heal for centuries. Today's plant scientists classify Sacred Basil as an adaptogen, a substance that helps us adapt mentally and physically to stressful circumstances. One whiff of its exquisite aroma and you'll understand why! This particular variety, O. africanum, hails from East Africa and is known for it's tutti-frutti scent, fast growth, and frost tolerance, and is the most commonly found variety in the U.S., as it is very well-adapted to the North American climate. This variety makes a delicious tea–and is much beloved by the bees.

Also commonly referred to as "Holy Basil."
