Holy Basil, or Tulsi, holds the most supreme place among the various medicinal herbs in India perhaps next to Lotus. . The ancient scriptures describe it as protector of life accompanying human beings from birth up till death. There are innumerable references to Tulsi in Indian mythology. The ancient Ayurvedic scriptures mentioned the plant in the management of several diseases. The plant has a purifying influence by liberating ozone and also repelling mosquitoes. Its healing properties are so well established that most people in India grow it in courtyards and traditionally worshipped daily in a ritual for the well-being of the family.
