    'Holy Red' Basil, also known as 'Sacred Red' is a basil plant with a long tradition of use in Ayurvedic medicine, and a well-known sacred plant of the Indian subcontinent. Among herb plants, Holy Basil has been called the “Incomparable One”, the “Queen of Herbs” and “The Elixir of Life.” 

    Red Basil, also known as Krishna Tulsi, is a purplish-red strain of Tulsi, identical in growth and culture. to its verdant counterpart, Green Holy Basil.  Both have spiritual and medicinal value and are sacred to Lord Vishnu, god of preservation.  Used as a medicinal herb to prevent colds and flu, this sacred herb has the ability to cleanse the respiratory system of infection. The oil is used as an antioxidant, relieving aches and pains.

    Basils are also potent natural pest repellents and wonderful companion plants, and can encourage nearby crops or repell mosquitoes and garden pests. Please read Briscoe's Tips for more growing information and for tips on using this dynamic herb.
