Holy Basil- Krishna: Organic- The Light Cellar



Commonly known as tulsi, meaning 'beyond compare' in Sanskrit, this herb belongs to the mint family and has been honoured for thousands of years in India as one of the most sacred and useful plants. There are 3 different types of holy basil known as Rama, Krishna and Vana. The Krishna variety has a crisp, slightly peppery flavour. 

Steep for 5-10 min in a covered pot. Avoid over steeping to preserve the high volatile oil content. Specific cautions: May have an anti-fertility effect on couples wishing to conceive if consumed regularly. Do not consume if taking blood thinners. Diabetics using insulin may need to consult with their health practitioner about adjusting insulin levels.
