Holy basil is much like the sweet basil you would find growing in your garden, Holy basil, however, is sacred...
Dating back hundreds of years, holy basil was originally known in India as tulsi, meaning “incomparable one”. This form of basil was commonly used in religious ceremonies and burials. It is also believed that holy basil will protect any home where it is grown. Tulsi is known to be the best herb for preparing the heart and mind for spiritual practices.
If it's not a plant, is it still technically considered an herb?
Known as the longevity herb of Chinese medicine, the reishi mushroom has been utilized for its healthful properties for over 4,000 years. In the Taoist tradition, this herb has been consumed for its ability to enhance spiritual receptivity while calming the mind and spirit. But the reishi mushrooms’ influence far surpasses just the spiritual realm.
