Tulsi, also commonly known as Holy Basil, is a powerful herb that has been used in Ayurvedic and other ancient plant healing treatments for thousands of years. Tulsi is an all-around healthy botanical that has significant adaptogenic (stress reduction) properties. In India, Tulsi is also used in extracts to help treat colds and the flu.
Tulsi's healing properties are mainly derived from its essential oils and terpenes. Tulsi helps destroy bacteria, viruses, and fungi. According to the scientific article "Tulsi - Ocimum sanctum: A herb for all reasons" in the 2014 Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine,
"Modern-day scientific research into tulsi demonstrates the many psychological and physiological benefits from consuming tulsi and provides a testament to the wisdom inherent in Hinduism and Ayurveda, which celebrates tulsi as a plant that can be worshipped, ingested, made into a tea and used for medicinal and spiritual purposes within daily life."
