Holy Basil (Organic)


Holy Basil, also called Tulsi has been used as medicine for centuries. It has rich Ayuverdic roots and made its way into western medicine. It is useful when you’re battling a respiratory infection or the flu – thanks to its antibacterial, antiviral properties combined with its ability to move congestion. Known as an adaptogenic, it helps to counter negative stress on the body, both physically and mentally. It has a calming effect on the body, but at the same time its uplifting. 

Studies show that Tusli has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help the body repair from skin tissue and DNA damage. It’s also detoxifying, and in India, it was used topically for snake bites. You might soak in a Tusli bath to help soothe and heal bug bites.

Antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, adaptogenic, neuroprotective, radioprotective, antioxidant, decongestant and antidepressant – it’s no wonder it’s considered the “elixir of life.”

In India – Tulsi is considered sacred, revered as household medicine. It's often planted in the courtyard of homes in a special clay pot. The Tulsi plant is integrated into daily life through rituals, placing offerings, tenderly caring for the plant, and drinking tulsi tea from its leaves and flowers.

This dried tulsi comes in a beautiful, reusable 10 oz glass jar with bamboo lid or compostable packaging, your choice!
