Tulsi Holy Basil Plants (Green)

Ocimum tenuiflorum
Holy Basil has a long tradition of use in Ayurvedic medicine and is a well-known sacred plant, a respected medicinal herb, of the Indian subcontinent. Green Holy Basil, also known as Ram Tulsi, is a green variety of basil with the same attributes as Red Basil.

As a medicinal herb it is used to prevent colds and flu, and cleanse the respiratory system of infection. The oil is used as an antioxidant, relieving aches and pains. In India, Hindus grow Tulsi as a religious plant in their homes and temples and use its leaves in routine worship.

Sacred Holy Green Basil

Recent scientific studies suggest that both the Green and Red varieties of Holy Basil may aid in lowering blood pressure, helping liver functions and reducing the risks of diabetes.

Beautiful Plant...Aroma is divine! April 25, 2018
Reviewer: Lisa West-Jones from Xenia, OH United States  
This was the first time I purchased a  Basil Tulsi plant.  When I received the plant, it was in excellent condition.  It grew abundantly in one season.  The aroma it has is delightful.  If you brush against it you'll receive a more dynamic aroma.  I dried the leaves and used in a tea blend for medicinal reasons.  I have already purchased plants for 2018.  This is an excellent plant to have in your garden.

Holy Basil October 21, 2015
Reviewer: Billy Whitlock from Marie, WV United States  
Our plants arrived in excellent condition with outstanding packaging. Since these are annuals and not hardy in our area, we have planted them and plan to keep them indoors this winter. We are hopeful they will over-winter well and be ready for placement in the bee garden in the spring. Very pleased with the service thus far.
