Holy Basil Krishna - Tulsi (Organic)


Holy Basil Krishna / Tulsi

Ocimum tenuiflorum

Holy Basil or Tulsi, (of which there are numerous species) is a highly regarded plant in the ancient Ayurvedic tradition. A small herb seen throughout India, it has long been a part of preventive health care, in the nearly ritual intake of the appropriate species, as a tea, for individual health. The variety of Tulsi referred to as Krishna tulsi, is more frequently used to treat illness.

Traditions have used Krishna tulsi for the treatment of phlegm conditions, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, malaria, diarrhea, dysentery, skin diseases, arthritis, painful eye diseases, chronic fever, and insect bites. The aromatic essential oils emitted from the plant also serve as an insect repellant.
