SKU: 1305 Category: Tags: ,

The purple-tinged Krishna Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) really stands out among the neem trees in our greenhouse. Used in religious ceremonies as well as cooking, tulsi may have medicinal qualities similar to neem but it’s a smaller plant that’s easy to grow in a sunny window.

Several studies indicate that holy basil contains bio-available antioxidants that help prevent damage from environmental toxins like Lindane and arsenic in rats as well as enhanced wound healing.

A recent clinical study on anxiety confirms the traditional use of tulsi as a calming tea. Other research indicates that tulsi may have cardioprotective effects in mice as well as immune-boosting properties.

LIMITED TIME ONLY: Order one Krishna Tulsi and we’ll send a free Kapoor Tulsi. When we ordered seeds earlier this year, we decided to try the Kapoor variety as well as the dark purple Krishna. It’s a much more vigorous plant, with the seeds sprouting in days not weeks and much more rapid growth. They’re already covered in flowers which are highly attractive to bees, so we’ll be planting some in the front yard where they’ll become part of our pollinator garden. (It’s also very attractive with lime-green leaves and dark purple flower spikes.) Offer available only while supplies last.

Free shipping is not available on plants.

    Can’t wait until it grows, just received start. It’s planted hanging in the sun (in the house it’s pretty cold here, UT). I hope it makes it. So excited to use the leaves.
