TULSI herb is a revered and holy plant in India. It is not only a holy herb, it is an integral medicine in Siddha, Naturopathy and Ayurveda Sciences.

Ocimum tenuiflorum or Ocimum Sanctum is the botanical name of Holy basil.

It is easy to grow and widely found in India. It can also be grown in tropical places of Southeast Asian countries.
This humble herb is packed with a host of medicinal and nutritional benefits. 
This herb is of two varieties-the green coloured  LAKSHMI TUSI and the purple-hued KRISHNA TULSI.

There are so many conventional methods of consumption of this basil. Apart from it, we can experiment with it in our cookery and acquire an incredible, earthy aromatic flavour in our dishes.

Let us begin to use this holy and humble Tulsi in our traditional Rasam to ward off chest congestion, cold and cough.
It is experimented by me yesterday and got rid of running nose and sore throat.This is the first time I used this herb and amazed its reactions. 

I want to share this rasam here.
