Holy Basil

4 oz of Organic Holy Basil Leaf Cut and Sifted (C/S) - Rama.

While related to the more well-known Ocimum basilicum, the basil used in cooking, Holy Basil is a medicinal herb used to make teas and extracts. It's known as a sacred plant in India. It is considered an adaptogen since it does not affect mood but instead affect functions of the body.

The Rama and Krishna varieties share the interchangeable botanical names Ocimum tenuiflorum and Ocimum sanctum; the two Latin names are synonymous with each other. They are, however, more like fraternal twins. The Rama variety is a short, annual, heavily flowered plant originally introduced to the U.S. as "Holy Basil". It is the most common type found in cultivation in the U.S. and is known for its cooling and mellow flavor. While not the most potent of the three varieties, it does have medicinal value and is considered to be the best tasting.

Warning: Holy Basil may modify glucose regulation.

Interesting taste. Has stems.

I've used this basil as a spice. It tastes quite different from sweet basil - I like it.
It does have a lot of small stems that you have to fish out, though.
