A treatment from the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, holy basil (Ocimum basilicum) – also known as tulsi, meaning “The Incomparable One” – is one of the most sacred herbs in the tradition and is frequently grown at home, according to Organic Lifestyle Magazine.

An adaptogen, it helps the body to work at its prime level even while under large amounts of stress by regulating the creation of stress hormones including cortisol and adrenaline, the magazine explained.

It contains high amounts of anti-inflammatory elements and antioxidants, helpful in fighting joint pain, Natural News reported.

These properties come from eugenol in the oil found from the plant’s leaves, according to

According to Healthline, the National Center for Biotechnology Information confirmed healing characteristics in 2010.

Side effects to using tulsi are rare, though, it is recommended women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not use it because it may simulate uterine contractions, Healthline noted.

Serious attention should be taken when using holy basil with other medications, Clark’s Nutrition reported. Risk of bleeding may increase when administered with aspirin, blood thinners, anti-platelet drugs, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen.

Additionally, the website noted that it may reduce blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Tulsi may also interfere with an enzyme system in the liver as it processes other medications, causing levels of those drugs to be altered and perhaps creating serious consequences.

Holy basil has also been used to treat headaches, colds, the flu, and indigestion as a folk remedy.
