Reviewed here is a product called Botanica Fermented Holy Basil. Holy basil is native to India, where it has been used for over 5,000 years for a variety of medicinal, ceremonial, and health purposes. Called “Tulsi” in India, Holy basil is revered for its healing effects. In fact, Tulsi is also known as “Queen of Herbs,” and Indian Hindus consider it a goddess in plant form, possessing great spiritual powers. As the legend goes, Krishna’s strength could not be outweighed by any sum of gold. However, the scale could be tipped by placing a single Tulsi leaf on the plate with love and devotion. Today, Tulsi can be found growing in every home, either inside in an earthenware container or outside in the garden, where it is consumed as a delicious tea.
