Ocimum sanctum Syn Ocimum tenuiflorum
Pack: 50 seeds, 2g

ADAPTOGENIC HERB 

NOTE: Green Holy Basil has a naturally low germination rate (approx 60%-65%); we supply extra seeds to compensate since you need to use more seeds to get the desired number of Tulsi plants. 

PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING: Tulsi seeds MUST NEED 18°C-25°C constant soil temperature to germinate. Tulsi is a light-dependent germinator. You may need to invest in a heated propagator or electric seedling heat pad, or use cling wrap to cover the seed tray top until germination if you are not living in SUB-TROPICAL or TROPICAL or ARID climate zone of Australia AND to try to germinate Tulsi seeds other than early October to late March time frame

Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart, Adelaide and surrounding regions up to 200km to 300km falls under either Temperate or Cool zone. Tulsi germination will be delayed or failed if you don’t respect weather condition in your area OR don’t provide artificial aid, i.e. indoor warmth to germinate.  If you are not sure about your climate zone, please see the climate map available in this listing photo gallery or ask us – more than happy to assist you to successfully grow and use Tulsi Plant for your well-being, which is our ultimate goal. 

For more than 5000 years, Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) has been considered India's "Queen of Herbs" and has been revered as one of the most sacred herbs in India, infused with healing power. Hindus view Tulsi (also spelled Tulasi or Thulasi) as a goddess in the form of a plant bestowed with great spiritual and healing powers. 

Rama Tulsi (Tulasi, Holy Basil) is originally from India–the main type grown there. The purple plants stemmed with green leaves, sometimes tinted in purple, open form to 4 feet, flowers reddish-purple. Highly aromatic plant, testing high in both eugenol and rosmarinic acid.  If you want to be a herbalist and are afraid you might tell somebody to take the wrong thing, then tell them to drink tulsi tea, and you will be right every time.  

It weighs up heavily as a garden-grown tea herb and may be used by itself or blended with leaves of other types of tulsi. 

Traditional usage (Ayurveda): stress, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and dementia.  Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to get started. 

Modern research has classified Tulsi as an ADAPTOGENIC HERB.

Adaptogens have been shown to support the body's natural immune system while relieving the body's negative reaction to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions, and restore balance. 

Growing Tulsi brings many blessings to the household!  We find it very satisfying, with taste and aroma most appealing.

Pick young leaves and branches for cooking uses. You may use fresh leaves in tea or chew them directly.

Sowing Guide

Plant Tulsi seeds in the Spring/early Summer for the best results.  Tulsi seed is a light-dependent germinator, and you can increase germ rates by holding the seed in the palm of your hand in the direct sunlight before planting and plant in such a way that the seeds still receive light in the pot or flat.  Scatter seeds on the surface, press in and keep evenly moist, in strong light and very warm until germination. MUST NEED 18°C-25°C constant soil temperature to germinate. Plants grow vigorously in warm climates.  This plant is frost intolerant.
