Tulsi: Sacred Plant of the Gods
Organic India’s foundational herb, Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, was chosen for its broad-spectrum health-supporting properties, but also because it works synergistically with other Ayurvedic adaptogenic herbs such as Turmeric and Ashwagandha.
In the ancient Vedic Bhagavata Purana text, Tulsi, called “Queen of Herbs,” is noted as the plant embodiment of Lakshmi, wife of Vishnu and the goddess of wealth and generosity. Tulsi is viewed as a living gateway between heaven and earth, and regarded as the manifestation of the divine within the plant kingdom.
As Tulsi traveled west along the early trade routes from the Asia to Europe, it became known to Christians as “sacred” or “holy” basil, and was included in legends, offerings and worship rituals.
Tulsi Body and Mind Benefits
Tulsi has been used for thousands of years to support a healthy response to physical, emotional, and environmental stress. Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb known to support the body’s healthy stress response. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to promote and support health.
Where is Tulsi grown?
