3.5” pot, Ocimum gratissimum

Perennial bush basil to 5 feet, native to India and East Africa, a wild species brought into cultivation.   The plants are woody-stemmed and actually overwinter indoors more readily than the other tulsi types.   Source of eugenol (oil of clove).  The plant is handsome and aromatic, slightly hairy, green-leaved.  As a garden grown tea herb, it weighs up heavily 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.
