    Tulsi Krishna


    Tulsi (ocimum sanctum), aka holy basil, is a member of the mint family & cousin of sweet basil.  Krishna, one of three types of Tulsi, is named after the blue-skinned Hindu god. Its purple stems & magenta leaves exude an aroma reminiscent of licorice with a touch of citrus. The pleasant taste is crisp & mildly peppery.  Revered as a sacred plant in India, Tulsi is considered an elixir of life with properties that contribute to one’'s well-being & ability to adapt to stress, thus playing a significant role in Ayurvedic medicine.
