          Use of Tulsi as Medicines

          Tulsi or Ocimum sanctum has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda for its diverse healing properties. Tulsi is termed as the Queen of herbs and is one of the holiest and most cherished of the many healing and healthy giving herbs of the orient. Sanskrit writers make two varieties of this plant founded upon some difference in the colour of their leaves namely, white and black. Tulsi is held sacred to Lord Vishnu of the Hindu trinity, and is reared in every Hindu house where it is daily watered and worshipped by all the members of the family. The beads or rosaries used by orthodox natives for counting the number of recitations of their deity’s name are made of the stems of this plant. The sacred Tulsi is renowned for its religious and spiritual sanctity, as well as for its important role in the traditional Ayurvedic and Unani medicine. Marked by its strong aroma and astringent taste, it is regarded in Ayurveda as a kind of ‘elixir of life’ and believed to promote longevity.
