Tulsi, The Holiest of Herbs

The Aroma of Wellness

Ocimum Sanctum, Tulsi or Holy Basil is a native Southeast Asian plant that has been worshipped for over 5,000 years as one of the most sacred plants known to man. 

In the Hindu Vedas, Tulsi translates to ‘matchless’ and is also known as ‘The Incomparable One’, and after learning more about this amazing plant, you will begin to see how.

Hindu’s view Tulsi as the manifestation of Lakshmi, the Goddess of Devotion. 

According to the legend, no amount of gold could outweigh Krishna’s power, but a single Tulsi leaf placed in the pan in loving devotion tilted that scale.

Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. 

Adaptogens are herbs that help the body to counteract and adapt to stress and Tulsi has been found to be one of the best.

From flowers to seeds, it is used to treat a wide range of ailments and is considered a tonic for the mind, body and spirit. 

When used in culinary dishes it is said to preserve and enhance the properties of food.
