Holy basil, or tulsi, is a revered herb in the Ayurveda medicine tradition believed to clear the aura and open up the heart and mind. Holy basil is especially called for when there is difficult breathing and cough. The dried leaves of holy basil make a mellow tasting tea that is light, spicy but cool, with an enticing undertone of cloves.
