This organic ayurvedic tea is really unique and combines the power of India's two most revered herbs: tulsi, or holy basil, and gotu kola. Tulsi, which means in Sanskrit "the incomparable one", is known in India as "the Queen of Herbs" and considered sacred. It's a powerful adaptogen and beneficial in treating stress, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flu, fever, upper respiratory tract infections, tonsillitis, bronchitis, diabetes, asthma, migraines, earache, digestive disorders, gastrointestinal upset, indigestion, colitis, bloating, cramps, heart disease, hepatitis, malaria, tuberculosis, mercury poisoning, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, ringworm, as well as other conditions. Gotu kola famous for its strong anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and healing properties is used to treat colds, flu, fever, tonsillitis, elephantiasis, pleurisy, tuberculosis, schistosomiasis, urinary tract infections, syphilis, dysentery, cholera, leprosy, asthma, epilepsy, anemia, diabetes, hepatitis, jaundice, systemic lupus erythematosus, stomach pain, diarrhea, indigestion, gastrointestinal ulcers, sunstroke, varicose veins, blood clots, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, stress, depression, psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer's disease, and many other diseases and disorders. It's no surprise that this tea energizes and awakens the senses, uplifts mood, flushes toxins out of the body, boosts the immune system, fights infection, facilitates healing, reduces inflammation, relieves pain and swelling of the mucous membranes, improves metabolism and fat burning, boosts energy levels, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, improves appetite, heals gastric and intestinal ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood spikes, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, soothes and heals dry and damaged skin, and even reduces the risk of cancer. It can be used externally, as well. A used tea bag can be applied topically to reduce skin irritation and inflammation, heal wounds, abscesses, sores, insect bites, scars, bruises, cuts, boils, blisters, burns and rashes. A tulsi and gotu kola facial mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps prevent premature aging. I love this tea: it relieves the symptoms of my acid reflux and gastritis, calms me down and helps me sleep better.
