Next to the lotus, holy basil is perhaps the most sacred plant of India. Its Indian name is tulasi or tulsi.
A very, very distinctive fragrance - unlike anything I've ever smelled before - sweet, spicy, with strong clove-like overtones. I enjoy it so much that I place potted plants every year near my back steps so I can brush against it going to and fro!
It is widely used for culinary, medicinal, and religious purposes.
Studies have shown that sacred basil has antioxidant properties, lowers cortisol levels and influences the neurochemistry of the brain in a manner similar to antidepressant medications. Regular use of this herb strengthens nerve tissue, promotes clarity of mind, increases memory and eases nervous tension.
Holy Thai Basil is going to be featured in a recipe this year at TomatoFest 2019!
