About This Product

Holy Basil

1 lb of Organic Holy Basil Leaf Cut and Sifted (C/S) - Krishna.

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. Krishna has purple-tinged leaves and makes a delicious tea. It is the the most potent of the three varieties, testing highest in concentrations of adaptogenic triterpenoic acids, which affect the body's response to stress.*
