Tulsi - The Queen of Herbs

Tulsi, also known as the holy basil in English, belong to labiateae family. It is one of the most sacred herbs in India. Tulsi is believed be a Goddess, having great spiritual and healing power. It is having an aroma, as because of the presence of scented oil.
The whole plant of tulsi is highly useful; like its leaves, its seed and even its stem. Tulsi is recommended in ayurvedic medicine, as because it helps to enhance immunity, metabolic functions as well as helps in managing respiratory problems. From the early days, for a variety of purpose, tulsi are quite helpful; which includes disorders of mouth, throat, lungs, heart, blood, liver, kidney, and even the digestive system, metabolic systems, reproductive systems and nervous systems. Still now, tulsi are commonly used to treat cough and cold, fever and even helps to cure various skin disorders.
In today’s perspective, the use of tulsi had become much more scientific. There are considerable proof that tulsi works wonderful in dropping stress, enhancing stamina, increasing the immune system, protecting against radiation damage, supporting heart, lungs and liver and even has antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal properties.

I stay at Oklahoma with my grandparents. My grandmom has visited India quite a number of times and from there she learnt a bit about Ayurvedic science. I heard about the numerous benefits of holy basil from her; and she always used to instigate me and my sister to intake tulsi when we suffer from cough and cold.

I’ve heard that basil is also beneficial for curing teeth disorders. To sustain dental health make a paste of basil leaves powder dried up in the sun and mix it with mustered oil, then gently apply it on the teeth like tooth paste. It can also protect you from pyorrhea.
