Holy basil is a plant that originates from India, and is often planted around Hindu shrines. The Hindus consider the plant to be a sacred representation of the goddess Lakshmi. Holy basil tea is a medicinal tea used to treat a variety of afflictions, including colds, coughs, flu, to treat various skin conditions, and reduce fever. There are some studies that show holy basil could help with diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels. It is also widely regarded as a useful treatment for stress and anxiety. Holy basil is know as “tulsi” in Hindu, which translates to “the incomparable one,” which given the variety of ailments it is used to treat, seems to be an accurate name.
