O’ Holy Basil was on the top of my list to plant in my forest farm due to it’s history and the extensive support it offers our health and well being. I have been drinking the tea for years and knew it had to have a home with Holistic DIVA Herbs.
In the “Charaka Samhita” the consummate text on Ayurveda written around 1000 BC, Holy Basil is described as “the incomparable one”. It is considered a symbol of fidelity and helpful in attaining spiritual enlightenment. It has been used to support a healthy response to stress, maintain blood sugar levels within a normal range, promote longevity, nourish the mind and elevate the spirit.
Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum) exhibits impressive adaptogenic activity. Helping the body adapt to stresses of various kinds, this plant has a normalizing, broad-spectrum action that maintain homeostasis.
I am probably brewing some right now.
