Liquid yoga! Ocimum tenuiflorum is commonly known as holy basil or tulsi and is a cousin of our common culinary basil.

Whether as a tea, essential oil, tincture or capsule, holy basil has benefits for so many people.

Now, modern science is confirming the benefits holy basil has been traditionally used for, like its ability to help the body deal with physical, chemical, metabolic and psychological stress.

Q: What is Ayurveda?

A: Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system, originally practiced in India, but now renowned world-wide. It practices holistic principles focusing on personalized health – i.e. what works for you works for you, but not necessarily for all. It focuses on balancing the body, senses, mind and spirit. Ayurveda is also referred to as the ‘science of life’, and has been around for over 8,000 years!

Q: In Ayurveda, one’s dosha (constitutional type) are often used. What doshas are holy basil best suited for?

A: As tulsi tastes hot and bitter, it’s very beneficial for normalizing kapha and vata.

Q: What is Tulsi Vivah?

A: Holy basil is so revered by the Hindu religion that it has its own festival. It’s the ceremonial marriage of tulsi to the Hindu god Vishnu. It signifies the end of the monsoon and the beginning of the wedding season.

Q: What are adaptogens?

A: Adaptogens are plants, herbs and mushrooms that help us adapt to or recover from the damaging effects of environmental or lifestyle stresses. They have been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine practices, and are revered for their ability to bring the body back into homeostasis — the body’s natural place of balance.

Q: Who needs adaptogens?

A: When stress constantly piles high, our body’s response can be negatively affected, increasing the risk of disease. Some daily life factors that may cause stress include:

  • Poor eating and sleep habits
  • Stored mental and emotional tension
  • Unaddressed physical symptoms and diseases
  • Financial, family, work and social obligations

Organika’s line of adaptogens can help provide the support you need to thrive in modern conditions.
