Traditional uses

Throughout India, tulsi is considered a sacred plant that has been traditionally used to remedy numerous ailments, and it is also called ‘the elixir of life’. The beneficial role of tulsi in obesity and diabetes is described in traditional Indian Ayurvedic literature. Tulsi’s medicinal uses have been recorded in Ayurveda, Siddha, Greek-Roman, and Unani medical writings.

In the Hindu culture tulsi is often referred to as ‘the queen of the herbs’, as it is a manifestation of the goddess Lakshmi in botanical form. It has been given such a lofty name due to its known common use in Ayurveda for more than 3000 years to support the body, mind, and also to protect each from stress.

Hindu homeowners grow a tulsi houseplant in front of which a prayer is said and offerings of water and other elements are made every day.

Throughout South Asia tulsi is used widely as a medicinal tea. Traditional healers have relied upon tulsi as an adaptogen, analgesic, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant.
