Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, is one of Ayurveda’s greatest plant allies…one the rest of the world has embraced joyfully. This spicy little plant has enjoyed a long history of being platnted in places of honor and respect, like temple gateways, meditation centers, and at the front door of many, many homes. This member of the Basil family has most certainly earned the moniker, Holy Basil. 


Because Tulsi is balancing to the mind, body, and spirit. Western herbalists describe Tulsi as an adaptogen with an affinity for the heart and chest. That means Tulsi has a positive affect on heart-centered emotional and physical conditions. That includes:

  • Anxiety, fear, worry
  • Depression, sorrow, grief
  • Despair and Hopelessness
  • Circulatory and Heart conditions, like high or low blood pressure
  • Migraines and Tension- or Stress-related Conditions
  • Digestive disturbances of a short-term or chronic nature, like upset tummy
  • Chronic Digestive complaints, like IBS/IBD, Crohn’s disease, GERD
  • Some cold/flu types of symptoms
