Since the dawn of time, Holy Basil has been referred to as the Mother of all medicine plants.
Tulsi, as she is known by the Hindus, is believed to be embodiment of the goddess Lakshmi. The plant plays a quintessential part in their everyday life. They pray to her, make religious beads from her stems and regard her as the most healing of all plants in Ayurvedic Medicine.
The latest clinical trials have found those theories to be correct. Considered to be “adaptogen” Holy Basil is able to undo the wrongs done to the body mind and spirit through stress.
If the rumblings from the laboratories hold true we may well find that Holy Basil holds the answer to diabetes and cancer as well as myriad other health complaints.
