'Tulsi' (Sacred Basil, Holy Basil)

(Ocimum sanctum aka O. tenuiflorum) Considered India’s “Queen of Herbs”  and cultivated for over 5,000 years for both religious and medicinal purposes. Used in Aryuvedic medicine for its classification as an adaptogenic herb (tonic herb) that supports ones natural immune system while simultaneously relieving stress and bringing balance.  An important herb in the Hindu religion, Tulsi is considered a goddess in plant form and is often found growing in a prominent location in the gardens or homes in India. Interestingly as Tulsi traveled westward into Europe and found its way into the Christian religions it became known as the “King of Herbs” and eventually sacred or holy basil hence its Latin name. Medicinal use of Tulsi leaves are far reaching and include, fever, cough, stress, headaches, skin disorders… The smell is pungent, spicy, and minty with a slight hint of sweet basil and cloves. Tulsi was a favorite forage plant for bees this year and we absolutely loved watching it grow and flower profusely. Like any herb you’d like to see grow bigger and bushier, pinch off flower buds as they appear. A lovely and fragrant addition to any flower bouquet as well!
