Tulsi, known as the Holy Basil, is one of the most sacred plants in India, is considered "The Queen of Herbs" for its regenerative and spiritual properties. Tulsi (also called Tulasi or Thulasi) has been used for thousands of years to support a healthy response to stress, natural detoxification, increase endurance and energy and restore balance and harmony. Our infusions of Tulsi besides delicious and organic, are a perfect rejuvenecedor of the nature.
Several modern studies have classified the Tulsi as an adaptogenic plant. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body by providing healthy responses to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for thousands of years to promote and maintain well-being. Many of the adaptogenic herbs are recognized by experts as rejuvenating herbs, qi tonics, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body to adapt to the environment, respond to physical and emotional stress, support normal body functions and restore balance.
It is said that there are 108 varieties of Tulsi. Each Tulsi variety has a slightly different appearance, taste and odor; when combined, create a perfectly balanced herbal infusion with multiple health benefits. In Organic India we use the 3 varieties with the greatest potential adaptogen, rich in antioxidants and stimulators of the immune system.
· Rama Tulsi (Ocimun Sanctum)
· Vana Tulsi (Ocimum Gratissimum)
· Krishna Tulsi (Ocimum Sanctum)
For more than 5000 years, Tulsi has been revered as one of the most sacred plants in India, renowned for its regenerative power.
Hindus see the Tulsi as a goddess (the manifestation of Lakshmi) in the form of a plant with great spiritual and healing powers. According to legend, no amount of gold could surpass Krishna's power, but a single Tulsi blade placed with devotion on the platform could tip the balance toward it. Currently in India, the Tulsi is still traditionally grown in a clay pot in the gardens of every household in the country and its leaves are used to make a delicious and refreshing tea.
The Tulsi traveled west along trade routes from East to Europe, becoming known in Christians as "sacred" or "holy" basil, as reflected in its Latin botanical name, Ocimum Sanctum. They recognized the Tulsi as "the King of Herbs" instead of the Queen, and the Holy Basil was included in legends, offerings, and worship rituals, and was regarded by many as a gift from Christ.
