With Diwali just over, the next festival that adorns our lives is Tulsi Vivah on 5th November. The Tulsi plant is seen as the earthly personification of the goddess Lakshmi, the wife of the god Vishnu.
And Tulsi Vivah is the ceremonial marriage of the Tulsi plant to Lord Vishnu; another festival underlining the special status of Tulsi in India.
Naturally rich in Vitamin A, and C, calcium, zinc, iron, chlorophyll, and several bioactive compounds, Tulsi is also called the “Incomparable One,” in Ayurveda, with every part being used in ayurvedic medicine.
Medical science now confirms its multi-therapeutic properties as an adaptogen, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, antistress, and anti-asthmatic agent.
Ayurveda even recommends the regular consumption of Tulsi as an essential lifestyle practice.
Hence, it’s no surprise that Tulsi was seamlessly integrated into daily rituals, and festivals and always found a central ‘angan’ place in every traditional Indian home.
Introducing Tulsi to the world
ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi tea burst into the market in 1999 with the launch of Tulsi Original Tea. This started an organic revolution in the country, positioning the healing herb on the world wellness stage.
ORGANIC INDIA’s first daunting challenge back then in the 90s was to convince the farmer to convert to organic farming and grow Tulsi.
With one-sixth of India’s land either barren or economically unproductive, growing Tulsi as the flagship product was a wise move: The herb requires little water and synergizes effectively with other healing herbs. Thanks to ORGANIC INDIA, barren lands turned into lush fields!
What makes ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi different?
While the success of ORGANIC INDIA’s Tulsi Original Tea led to an upsurge of Tulsi-based products in the market, proper cultivation, harvesting, processing, and storage play a critical role in ensuring that the healing properties of Tulsi are fully preserved and easily bio-available either in tea, infusion, or supplement form.
At ORGANIC INDIA, we grow our Tulsi and all other herbs employing only supportive practices unique to each plant species, and prevent any contamination from chemical fertilizers, artificial pesticides, growth hormones, and genetically modified organisms.
Stringent quality assurance processes ensure consistent quality and botanical integrity across batches.
With nature as our guide…
With over 108 varieties of Tulsi, the three main medicinal varieties are Rama, Vana, and Krishna Tulsi with an array of health benefits. So we constituted these three as the foundation of ORGANIC INDIA’s healing teas and inspired us to formulate more than 23 varieties of relaxing, flavourful, and restorative herbal blends. These teas and, infusions are now savoured in more than 48 countries.
Some of our iconic flavours and their effects include:
