Wild Basil African Blue Ocimum Gratissimum Vana Tulsi Seeds

Packet of 100+ home grown seeds!

Known as Vana Tulsi in India, it is also native to Africa, Madagascar, southern Asia, and the Bismarck Archipelago, and has been naturalized in Polynesia, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama, West Indies, Brazil, and Bolivia. Used extensively as a food flavouring herb and as a tea everywhere it is found. Sometimes called clove basil, African basil, Efinrin, Daidoya, Nchuawu, Ntonng, Fobazen, Kunudiri, Menthe gabonaise, Basilic sauvage, Basilic, Tree basil, Gros baume, Tolsi or Baumier.

Said to be a potent mosquito and insect repellent, one of the reasons it is often planted near the doorway of homes. It is even one of the base ingredients for some commercial mosquito repellant products.

Makes an awesome tulsi tea!

The essential oil has potential for use as a food preservative, and is one of the few things toxic to Leishmania.(Don’t Google that if you are eating, trust me, it’s kinda horrific.)

Often used in herbal based antibacterial medicines and is considered an antispasmodic, antiseptic, antiparasitic herb.

Often used for the treatment of colds, flu, fevers, headaches, impotence, flatulence, diarrhea, dysentery, and parasitic infestations.

Good for whatever ails you in my opinion, we drink it all the time. Tastes great too!

Grown by me and the Mrs organically, no chems, no nasties, no problems!!!
