Organic Tulsi (Holy) Basil HEIRLOOM One of our favorite plants of all time, Tulsi is a beautiful medicinal herb that attracts beneficial insects (including butterflies!) and fills the air with its sweet, complex fragrance. Easy to grow and resilient in any soil, we enjoy Tulsi in various forms throughout the seasons. In summer we simply pluck leaves and indeed entire stems to lightly infuse our water and throughout the year we steep Tulsi leaves both fresh and dry in hot water for tea. We also make a tincture of Tulsi to take every day as an adaptogenic tonic, encouraging our bodies to adapt to stress both physical and psychological stress. Its flavor is more complex than Thai Basil and though it is sometimes used in Indian and Asian kitchens it doesn't often get beyond the tea kettle in our house.

This July and August, slow down to watch the bees as they become the same rich orange-red color as Tulsi pollen. It is truly a sight to see.

Our original seed came from the abundant and regionally adapted generosity of Edible Acres, the permacultural genius of Sean Dembrosky.
