Tulsi… What is it?

More commonly known as holy basil (Ocimum Sanctum), tulsi-holy basil is a species of the Lamiaceae family. While culinary basil has many benefits of its own, the restorative properties of tulsi are beneficial for body, mind and soul.

After more than 5,000 years of use in its native India, tulsi is expanding to the United States as a go-to herb, and for good reason. From digestion to immunity, stress relief, mood enhancement and all bodily systems in between, tulsi will keep you balanced. 

Why the funny name?

“Tula” translates to balance, while “si” means horizontal line. The two together emphasize an even level, that the body is balanced. Named after the Hindu Goddess, and known as the “Queen of Herbs,” tulsi truly means balance.
