Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, has long been a highly revered herb in India. It is used for sharpening the mind, indigestion, diarrhoea, coughs, colds, fevers, headaches, rheumatism, arthritis, low libido, bronchitis, skin diseases as well as detoxification from cannabis.

It also has a normalising influence on blood pressure and blood sugar.
