Take Care Of Your Health By Growing Basil At Home

Many herbs are easy to grow if you want to grow the plants for the first time, and one of them is basil. 

Basil is basically a plant of tropical climates and does not be watered regularly. There are multiple varieties of basil, and some of them are listed below. 

Dark opal basil

People use dark opal basil for ornamentation because of its purple colour, and it can grow up to eighteen inches tall. 

Greek Yevani Basil 

Greek even basil has the same qualities as spicy bush basil.

Pesto Erpettuo Basil 

Pesto Erpettuo basil has some features of Greek Yevani basil but it is different because of its variegated leaves with white and green color. 

African blue basil 

The leaves of African blue basil are more solid as compared to other types of basil, which begin to grow blue and later on turn green when they grow.

This variety of basil can have lots of flowers, so it can attract lots of pollinators, which can be essential for your other plants.

If you want pollinators for some of your plants then you should buy plants online of these kinds. This is a perennial variety and, therefore, can survive in almost any season. 

Thai sweet basil

This basil is used in many Thai and Vietnamese cuisines, like in different kinds of pasta and fish. You can have more aromas and flavours in your pasta by adding fresh leaves grown at your house whenever you want. 

Holy basil

Also known as Tulsi, holy basil is worshipped in India, and people consider it auspicious to plant it at the centre of the courtyard. People who are not so religious should have this plant at home owing to its health benefits.

This is eaten for boosting immunity and for treating cough, cold, etc. People add the leaves of tulsi to the tea. The usual tea that people take contains caffeine, which can be harmful to health, so they should take herbal teas, which can even keep them hydrated.

Likely, they should prepare the tea only with tulsi. One can even purchase tea bags of Tulsi from the market, but there is no better thing than making tea with fresh leaves of Tulsi. Thus, you should order plants online instead of ordering tea bags of herbal tea. 

Greek columnar basil

Greek columnar basil is low-maintenance basil as it bears almost no flowers, so you do not have to cut the flowers so that the plant can focus on its important parts. You can grow this plant if you have less time to take care of plants. 

Spicy bush basil 

The height of spicy bush basil can be between twelve to sixteen inches, and as its name suggests, it can be bushy. It can have some spiciness but not spicy. It has leaves of small size which is up to one inch. 

This is how one can boost immunity and be physically fit by growing herbs at home and consuming fresh leaves from them.
