As mid-to-late summer approaches, sweet Thai Basil plants grow closely together as their deep-purple stems begin to flower. While Thai Basil herbs are able to easily reseed, this variety grows a bountiful crop that loves to spread in the heat and dies back once the first frost arrives. Thai Basil Herbs also prefer to have their dried flowers cut back and will produce more lush leaves before harvesting.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eNon-culinary Uses for Thai Basil Herb Seed\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThai Basil is often grown for ornamental uses by giving deep-purple colors and a minty scent to your overall garden. Thai Basil also makes a great natural soap by mixing liquid glycerin with your minced up fresh herbs, then pouring into a mold to saponify and harden for up to 48 hours. Add some essential oils such as lemon. As aromatherapy, Thai Basil leaves can be placed underneath your eyes or massaged onto your temples to help relieve stress.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBasil has been cultivated into many different varieties as an ultimate hybrid herb. It’s useful to note how in general, basil can be classified as either sweet or unsweet. The more common types are sweet basils, such as Thai Basil. A variety that would be considered less sweet is lemon basil.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eBenefits of Thai Basil Herb Seed\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs a sweet basil variety a part of the mint family, Thai Basil compliments savory and spicy dishes such as Indian curries or pho, a Vietnamese soup. While cooking, the leaves of Thai Basil can withstand the heat better than other types of sweet basil. Although Thai Basil is a sweet cultivar, this herb is known for its licorice flavor and aroma, which can be added on top of a fresh tomato salad.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eThai Basil Seeds Per Package:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 oz -
