Holy Basil Gaining Popularity In Modern Society
The Ancient Hindu Herb, Tulsi, Is Earning Respect in Today's World.
Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi which means "the incomparable one", has been considered as India's "Queen of Herbs." The holy basil, known to have been infused with healing power, has been grown and cultivated in India for more than 5,000 years for medicinal uses. The hairy plant with small branches and tender leaves has a pleasant aroma and is grown abundantly around Hindu temples.
In Hindu mythology, Tulsi is considered as a reincarnation of Lakshmi, the goddess of happiness, longevity, prosperity, and beauty. Lakshmi is the wife of Vishnu, one of the most important deities in the Hindu religion. Hindus view Tulsi as a goddess in the form of a plant with great spiritual and healing powers. Tulsi or holy basil is one of the most sacred herbs in India.
The tulsi has found its way to Europe through the early trade routes from the Orient where the plant became known as "sacred basil" or "holy basil" and hailed as "The King of Herbs" by the herbalists of Europe.
The healing powers of the Tulsi plant have been documented for over 5,000 years, and it got the attention of modern scientists who have made researches to investigate and validate these healing benefits.
Over time, scientists have learned that the holy basil contains beneficial compounds known as phytochemicals. These compounds possess antioxidant and immune-boosting properties that promote good health. Holy basil has been found to be an excellent germicidal, fungicidal, disinfectant, analgesic, antibiotic, and adaptogen. It can protect the body from all sorts of bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.
