Tulsi is one of our staff’s favorites, and is becoming better known. Make up some of this tasty ancient tea remedy to start your day – add honey or syrup to taste. A little goes a long way.
Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum, syn. O. sanctum, Lamiaceae), also called holy basil, and East Indian basil (O. gratissimum) are aromatic culinary and medicinal herbs indigenous to India that have been used in the Ayurvedic traditional medicine system for more than 3,000 years. According to ancient folklore, the Tulsi plant is a manifestation of the Divine Mother on Earth, for the benefit of all creation.
