Considered sacred in India, holy basil—also known as Tulsi—is an aromatic herb belonging to the Lamiaceae (mint) family of plants. In Ayurvedic health practices, it’s used traditionally to promote balance and relieve stress.
Holy basil’s small, soft leaves have a peppery or licorice-like flavor and aroma that bring a slightly spicy, refreshing taste to any dish. They’re popular in Thai curries, and commonly steeped into a soothing, hot tea. Powdered holy basil can also be used to mix up a natural toothpaste that cleans teeth and freshens breath.
How to enjoy it:
Combine one quarter teaspoon of this smooth-mixing, quick-dissolving powder with 8 oz. of hot water for tea. Or, add it to recipes for an instant burst of fresh holy basil flavor.
To make a simple toothpaste, combine a small amount of holy basil powder with a little mustard oil; apply to toothbrush and brush teeth as usual.
