Holy tulsi basil

Holy tulsi basil (ocimum sanctum) has been cultivated for 1000’s of years for its healing properties.  It is native to tropical Asia and now can be found all around the world.  It is a sacred plant in India and is said to benefit mind, body and spirit.

This is a potent herb with documented antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.  Also, new studies are being done that show tulsi could work for stress relief and relaxation, which could prove to be very helpful in the world today.

So if you have not experienced this wonderful plant I encourage you to do a little research of your own and see what it is all about.  If nothing else it is a beautiful plant to have around and it smells great!
