What Exactly is Holy Basil?

In Hinduism, the Tulsi plant, or Holy Basil, is deemed the most sacred of plants, and is thought of as the physical manifestation of the goddess, Tulsi. In traditional Hindu homes, Tulsi is centrally planted inside courtyards. As Tulsi is considered to both spiritually protect and physically heal, one can easily understand the significance given to this remarkable herb.

Review Title: My way to relax after a hard day

Review by Rachelon October 3, 2018
Holy Basil is my favorite way to calm down and relax after all the worries of the day. I like it with honey to satisfy my sweet tooth but it is also good just on its own. I can get 2 large cupfuls out of one tea bag when I make it in a teapot. Carries me through the evening and into the next day.
