Possible health benefits of Organic Tulsi
The unique chemistry of tulsi is highly complex, it contains hundreds of beneficial compounds known as phytochemicals. The essential oils in the leaves of tulsi contribute to the fragrance and refreshing flavour of tulsi tea.
Some of tulsi’s effects are noticed quite immediately, while others develop gradually after weeks of regular use.
Organic Tulsi carries the bitter, pungent and astringent tastes and generates a warming influence. It has a predominantly Kapha reducing effect on the doshas, but can be used to pacify Vata and Pitta as well.

Tulsi “tea” is caffeine free and can be safely consumed up to six times a day. For more benefits, increase the ration of tulsi powder to water and steep longer.
Tulsi is generally a very safe healing herb. Studies from the 1970s suggested that it might have a mild anti-fertility effect in animals. Although this has not been shown to occur in humans, if you are pregnant or trying to be, do not take medicinal doses.
