This potent herb has been used for thousands of years for its array of therapeutic benefits.  It is ubiquitous in its  native India, as many households grow and care for the herb in earthenware pots.  The oil extracted from tulsi is a strong antiseptic against many disease causing organisms and has been used to treat colds, coughs, and  flu.  The herb lowers cortisol levels and reduces stress, and powerful antioxidants help to reduce the damaging effects of aging on the body.  It aids in protecting the organs and tissues from chemical stress from industrial pollutants and chemotherapy.  It is also shown to help with acne, asthma, fever, headache, heart disease, inflammation, lung disorders, kidney stones, and respiratory disorders.


In Hinduism, the plant is revered as an incarnation of the goddess Tulsi, offering divine protection.  The goddess Lakshmi tipped the divine scales of Krishna with a single holy basil leaf, when previously no amount of gold could do so.  The plant’s woody stalks are also often made into beads used in mala meditations or rosaries.
