Known as "holy basil" in its homeland of India, tulsi is thought to be one of the world's most healthful herbal infusions. Its wide-ranging health benefits include the ability to reduce asthma attacks, the power to modulate the immune system toward the optimal level and strong adaptogenic qualities (which means it reduces stress and increases energy).
