ABOUT THE PLANT: Also known as Tulsi, Holy Basil, Ocimum tenuiflorum.
An aromatic plant native to the Indian subcontinent and is cultivated throughout the Southeast Asian tropics. Holy Kaprao is cultivated for religious and medicinal purposes. It is commonly used in Ayurveda and has an important role in Hinduism, in which worship involves holy basil plants or leaves. Considered an elixir of life, it has an important place in our home garden.
The plant has strongly scented green or purple leaves and purplish elongated flowers. We use the flowering tops and leaves of this medicinal basil plant in herbal teas.
