Healing with herbs is as old as mankind. The connection between man and his search for remedies in nature dates back to the distant past, of which there is ample evidence. One of the plants often used for this purpose is the basil (Ocimum spp), a plant with multiple values: biblical, medicinal, ornamental, culinary and social. In this regard, research has been conducted on the optimal method of seed germination in this species. The tests were performed at the Vegetable Research and Development Station (SCDL) Buzau. The experiment involved the establishment of eight study variants, with three repetitions each. The results are statistically assured. Following the research on the germination faculty, it was found that in the variant where aghiasma (Holy water) was used for wetting the seeds, there was the highest number of germs of the species under observation. In conclusion, by establishing the optimal method of twinning basil seeds, producers will benefit from the economic efficiency of the crop, and the finished product will reach the final consumer at a low price and high quality.
