Cradled in the heart of India's spiritual landscape is a festival that embodies the essence of a holistic way of life - Tulsi Vivah. This sacred union of Tulsi (Holy Basil) with Lord Krishna, observed every year, serves as a poignant reminder of the deep-rooted connection between nature and spirituality.
For centuries, Tulsi had been revered in our homes and hearts as an integral part of our religious practices, as well as a source of healing.
Known as “The Incomparable One,” and “The Queen of Herbs,”, every part of the Tulsi plant, from leaves to seeds and oil, plays a role in Ayurvedic medicine.
Naturally rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, zinc, iron, chlorophyll, and bioactive compounds including eugenol, rosmarinic acid, ursolic acid, β-caryophyllene, linalool, 1,8-cineole and carvacrol, Tulsi is also called the elixir of life because it promotes longevity.
Modern medical science today substantiates Tulsi's therapeutic properties, confirming its apoptogenic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, antistress, and anti-asthmatic capabilities to enhance health and vitality.
Agriculturally, Tulsi is a remarkably hardy plant, requiring little water and other resources to flourish.
These qualities inspired us at Organic India to choose Tulsi as our flagship herb and introduce India's first Tulsi Green Tea.
As an organization devoted to creating True Wellness for people and the planet, this launch
not only enabled consumers around the world to access the benefits of Tulsi but also reshaped people's perceptions of it, marking the start of a transformative wellness journey for many.
What makes ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi different
While there are many Tulsi green teas in the market today, we at Organic India understand that proper cultivation, harvesting, preservation, and storage play a critical role in ensuring the healing properties of Tulsi are preserved and easily available to the body either in tea, infusion, or supplement form.
Hence we partner with thousands of farmers across India to grow Tulsi using organic farming methods. The aim is to create a business ecology wherein farmers are not only empowered to practice a healthy and sustainable livelihood but also nurture the land they live on and produce a range of products free from toxic pesticides, additives and preservatives.
Stringent quality assurance standards and processes including high-performance liquid
chromatography fingerprints and microscopic assays ensure consistent quality and botanical
integrity across batches.
Whenever you buy an Organic India product, you become part of a global chain of consumers committed to healthy conscious living.
Integrating the finest aspects of Tulsi
With over 108 varieties of Tulsi, we have centred our healing teas, infusions and health supplements on three main medicinal varieties: Rama, Vana, and Krishna Tulsi, each blessed with unique healing properties:
- Rama Tulsi – Relieves Stress. Boosts immunity & liver health
- Krishna Tulsi – Relieves cough & cold. Enhances skin glow
- Vana Tulsi – Anti-aging. Reduces Inflammation & Enhances Energy
Knowing Tulsi’s ability to work synergistically with other herbs, we went one step further to combine Ayurvedic wisdom with modern science to create a series of Tulsi teas, infusions, and supplement blends to help restore the body’s natural healing abilities, build resilience and support healthy, conscious living.
With a unique and powerful blend of combinations like Ginger, Ashwagandha, Brahmi,
Chamomile, Mulethi, and Jasmine Green Tea, there are a multitude of flavours and health benefits for all.
How Tulsi helps you heal
Combined, let’s look at some of the ways this ‘Queen of herbs’ helps promote well-being and vitality:
- Gives a powerful start to your day
Starting your day with an energizing cup of Tulsi green tea, rather than the traditional milk tea, offers a revitalizing way to kickstart your morning. Tulsi green tea with honey and lemon provides a potent blend to not only restore your body's pH balance but also promote a sense of serenity, boost your immunity, and enhance your stamina. With its remarkable anti-ulcer properties, Tulsi soothes and shields the stomach lining, while the combination of Tulsi and Green tea amplifies their anti-inflammatory and metabolism-boosting benefits, providing a robust and refreshing beginning to your day.
- Boosts digestion and liver function
The pairing of Tulsi and ginger in teas such as Tulsi Ginger and Tulsi Ginger Turmeric offers exceptional digestive support. This dynamic combination not only alleviates gas, boosts circulation and promotes healthy digestion but also bolsters liver function. Additionally, the inclusion of turmeric complements these benefits by improving joint health, reducing inflammation, boosting skin glow and supporting the body's natural healing processes.
- Relieves stress and enhances mental clarity
Stress not only worsens the damaging action of toxins and pollutants, but the excess release of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline also restricts the action of insulin, thereby increasing the risk of insulin resistance and diabetes. While we cannot eliminate the stress, beverages such as coffee and colas only worsen anxiety and acidity. Tulsi's adaptogenic qualities help protect the body from stress, in combination with other herbs in infusions like Tulsi Ashwagandha and Tulsi Honey Chamomile Tea. These blends lower cortisol levels, fight oxidative stress, and soothe the nervous system while improving cognitive function and memory.
- Protects you against infections and pollution
Tulsi's inherent antibacterial, antiviral, and immunomodulatory attributes play a pivotal role in fighting infections and fortifying both the immune and cardiovascular systems. Its harmonious blend with other herbs in teas like Tulsi Mulethi and Tulsi Ginger provides relief from colds, coughs, and flu, enhancing its effectiveness as a natural remedy.
- Aids cardiac health and function
Tulsi's ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, regulate blood sugar, and enhance blood circulation positions it as a powerful preventive measure against cardiovascular diseases. This remarkable herb when blended with herbs like Sweet Rose, and Jasmine effectively combats inflammation, the risk of coronary artery diseases and hypertension, protecting both arterial and heart health.
- Enhances detoxification and boosts vitality
Tulsi facilitates the body's innate detoxification process, effectively purifying it from within. This internal cleansing holds particular importance, as it can become sluggish in the face of an unhealthy lifestyle, leading to issues like congestion and constipation. By incorporating teas such as Tulsi Detox Kahwa, a powerful blend of Tulsi and spices like Ginger, Clove and Black Pepper, you can actively support your body's internal maintenance, effectively neutralizing harmful toxins and keeping you light and full of energy.
With a plethora of healing qualities, incorporating Tulsi into your daily life is a powerful lifestyle change that can significantly impact your health and well-being.
So, this festival season, as we pay homage to Tulsi and celebrate its divine union, let's also rekindle our connection with this remarkable herb. Let's embrace the healing and transformative power of Tulsi. Whether in the form of a variety of Tulsi teas and infusions or supplements, in Tulsi’s soothing embrace, we can find not just a source of healing, but a way of life that resonates with purity, healing, and conscious living.
