For anyone not yet convinced of the benefits of holy basil, please look it up.

It's anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant.

It is what's known as an adaptogen, meaning that it helps to protect your body from the ongoing effects of things like stress and toxins.

It is a key ingredient in Ayurvedic cough remedies as it helps loosen and move mucus in respiratory conditions.

Holy Basil has also been shown to have an affect in lowering the blood sugar levels in diabetics.

Plus many more uses too numerous to mention.

I buy it at a health food store called Nature's Pantry. It's $3.35 for a box of 18 bags.
I tried to check their web site to see if you can order online, but it's down right now. Good luck!

I can do this!

Holy Basil (or Tulsi) is a root that has many benefits to the body. It contains hundreds of phytochemicals, it regulates the body's response to stress, it maintains blood pressure, regulates cortisol and helps normalize blood sugar levels.

I am unable to find it anywhere in my area so I have been ordering it. I would like to find it cheaper if possible because I drink at least 2 cups per day.

I tried it a few months ago at my Whole Foods Market. I wasn't a fan of the flavor. They had free samples that day because they were pushing it. Apparently it isn't very popular in my area. They were selling it really cheap. I will look and see if they still have any.

A new tea house just opened in my neck of the wooods and I just looked at their list of teas.....sorry it's not on it:(

I did however try their Caramel tea and their Chocolate mint tea....just FABULOUS!!!!!
It's got all the anti- oxidants of tea, but taste like such a treat.
It's fairly expensive too!!!

I love Holy Basil/Tulsi tea, but it is expensive. I usually buy from iherb.com - $4 a box! Anyone find it cheaper? I would rather drink the tea than take the supplement.

I will be posting this in a couple message boards as I would love to lower the cost.

Thanks!
