Holy Basil: Combat stress
Several animal studies back holy basil, a special variety of the plant you use in your pesto sauce, as effective at reducing stress by increasing adrenalin and noradrenalin and decreasing serotonin. This is no surprise to Pratima Nangia-Makker, a researcher at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, whose mother and grandmother relied on a tea made from the leaves of holy basil to relieve indigestion and headaches.
It might also inhibit breast cancer. First in test tubes and then in mice, a tea made of holy basil shrunk tumours, reduced their blood supply, and stopped their spread, found Nangia-Makker, who plans to study the effects in humans.
The leaves are good for nerves and to sharpen memory. Basil leaves are regarded as an adaptogen, anti-stress agent. Twelve basil leaves can be chewed twice a day to prevent stress. Chewing of basil leaves also cures ulcers and infections in mouth.
Tulsi is known for its antiseptic property to destroy bacteria and insects. A teaspoon of tulsi leaves juice can be taken at an interval of few hours in case of insect bite. Also fresh juice must be applied to the affected parts.
Basil juice is an effective remedy for sore eyes and night blindness. Two drops of black basil juice should be put into the eyes daily at bedtime to cure this.
Powder of dried tulsi leaves mixed with mustard oil can be used as toothpaste for maintaining dental health, countering bad breath and for massaging gums.
Pounded leaves mixed with sandalwood paste can be applied on forehead to get relief from headache.
A few drops of juice can be put in the ear to treat earache and dullness of hearing.
The seeds of the plant are useful in treating diarrhea, chronic dysentery and constipation.
