Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi, has an earthy, herbaceous presence and hints of clove, licorice, mint and lemon. It is not as pungent as other basil varieties. Its strong aroma invokes mental clarity, peace of mind, and heightens consciousness.
Holy Basil has been revered in India for over five thousand years as a healing balm for body, mind and spirit, and is known to bestow an amazing number of health benefits.
Holy Basil is rich in antioxidants and well known for its restorative powers. Its benefits include relieving stress, bolstering immunity, enhancing stamina, providing support during cold season and promoting a healthy metabolism.
Holy Basil contains hundreds of beneficial compounds known as phyto-chemicals. Working together, these compounds possess strong antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, adaptogenic, and immune-enhancing properties that promote general health and support the body's natural defense against stress and diseases.
When blended with Rose, Rose Geranium and Ylang Ylang, Holy Basil is an excellent tonic for healing grief in the heart or any kind of sadness.
Some of Holy Basil's effects are quite immediate, while others develop gradually after weeks of regular use. For example, you may feel more relaxed and energized after the first application. Although Tulsi has many specific effects on different body systems, its main benefits arise from its impressive general capacity to assist the body's natural process of healing and maintaining health. Holy Basil's overall health promotion and disease prevention effects are powerful, but often subtle. For example, you may simply notice that you do not seem to be bothered by stress or common illnesses, such as colds or flu, nearly as often as before. Or you may notice that you generally tire less easily.
