Indications: We are pleased to present our new Supercritical Organic Holy Basil - Tulasi. Tattva's Herbs' Holy Basil combines the wisdom of Mother Nature with the very latest technology known as supercritical extraction. This state of the art technology delivers a very pure extract that is both full spectrum and extremely concentrated at the same time. It is so pure that you can actually smell the qualities of the original herb in the extract, and you are greeted with this aroma when you open a bottle. It is sweet and powerful. There is simply no other extraction method so effective that you can actually smell the purity, fragrance and essence of the herb. This is a testimony to the great care that goes into the selection of the herbs and the supercritical extraction process itself. To give you an idea of the potency and concentration of the extract, we can often use as much as 200 to 250 pounds of fresh herbs to produce just one pound of supercritical extract. All of the herbs are grown on organic farms and selected with the greatest of care. The supercritical process produces an exceptionally broad representation of the herbs' active constituents, which oftentimes traditional methods of extraction cannot even begin to extract. Furthermore, the supercritical process does not use any chemical solvents at all. Instead, it utilizes safe and environmentally friendly carbon dioxide, the same carbon dioxide that is found in your sparkling water.
Finally, the supercritical extract, post-supercritical extract (PSE) (a water-soluble extract), and the raw whole herb are combined to create our herbal formula. The finished product is superior in terms of both freshness and breadth of active constituents. It delivers the full spectrum of the herbs with a potency that cannot be surpassed. In addition, all of the herbs are independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminates. The result is an exquisite formula that delivers simplicity, purity and incredible potency all at once.
Tulasi, or Holy Basil is an herbal remedy used that has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurveda. Tulsi is an important constituent of many Ayurvedic cough syrups and expectorants. It helps to maintain healthy mucus levels. Its oil is rich in vitamin C, carotene, calcium and phosphorus.

Tulasi: The Holy Power Plant
The holy Indian basil is a miracle plant The 'tulasi' plant or Indian basil is an important symbol in the Hindu religious tradition. The name 'tulasi' connotes "the incomparable one". Tulasi is a venerated plant and Hindus worship it in the morning and evening. Tulasi grows wild in the tropics and warm regions. Dark or Shyama tulasi and light or Rama tulasi are the two main varieties of basil, the former possessing greater medicinal value. Of the many varieties, the Krishna or Shyama tulasi is commonly used for worship.
Tulasi As A Deity The presence of tulasi plant symbolizes the religious bent of a Hindu family. A Hindu household is considered incomplete if it doesn't have a tulasi plant in the courtyard. Many families have the tulsi planted in a specially built structure, which has images of deities installed on all four sides, and an alcove for a small earthen oil lamp. Some households can even have up to a dozen tulasi plants on the verandah or in the garden forming a "tulasi-van" or "tulasivrindavan" - a miniature basil forest. Places that tend to inspire concentration and places ideal for worship, according to the Gandharv Tantra, include "grounds overgrown with tulsi plants". The Tulasi Manas Mandir at Varanasi is one such famous temple, where tulasi is worshipped along with other Hindu gods and goddesses. Vaishnavites or believers of Lord Vishnuworship the tulasi leaf because it's the one that pleases Lord Vishnu the most. They also wear beaded necklaces made of tulasi stems. The manufacture of these tulasi necklaces is a cottage industry in pilgrimages and temple towns.
Tulasi As An Elixir Apart from its religious significance, it is of great medicinal significance, and is a prime herb in Ayurvedic treatment. Marked by its strong aroma and a stringent taste, tulasi is a kind of "the elixir of life" as it promotes longevity. Essential oil extracted from karpoora tulasi is mostly used for medicinal purposes though of late it is used in the manufacture of herbal toiletry. According to Jeevan Kulkarni, author of Historical Truths & Untruths Exposed, when Hindu women worship tulasi, they in effect pray for "less and less carbonic acid and more and more oxygen - a perfect object lesson in sanitation, art and religion". The tulasi plant is even known to purify or de-pollute the atmosphere and also works as a repellent to mosquitoes, flies and other harmful insects. Tulasi used to be a universal remedy in cases of malarial fever. Prof Shrinivas Tilak, who teaches Religion at Concordia University, Montreal has made this historical citation: In a letter written to TheTimes, London, dated May 2, 1903 Dr George Birdwood, Professor of Anatomy, Grant Medical College, Bombay said, "When the Victoria Gardens were established in Bombay, the men employed on those works were pestered by mosquitoes. At the recommendation of the Hindu managers, the whole boundary of the gardens was planted with holy basil, on which the plague of mosquitos was at once abated..."
Tulasi In Legends Quite a few myths and legends found in the Puranas or ancient scriptures point to the origin of importance of tulasi in religious rituals. Although tulasi is regarded as feminine, in no folklore is she described as the consort the Lord. Yet a garland solely made of tulasi leaves is the first offering to the Lord as part of the daily ritual. The plant is accorded the sixth place among the eight objects of worship in the ritual of the consecration of the Kalasha, the container of holy water. According to one legend, Tulsi was the incarnation of a princess who fell in love with Lord Krishna, and so had a curse laid on her by his consort Radha. Tulasi is also mentioned in the stories of Meera and of Radha immortalised in Jayadev's Gita Govinda. The story of Lord Krishna has it that when Krishna was weighed in gold, not even all the ornaments of Satyabhama could outweigh him. But a single tulasi leaf placed by Rukmani on the pan tilted the scale. In the Hindu mythology, tulasi is very dear to Lord Vishnu. Tulasi is ceremonially married to Lord Vishnu annually on the 11th bright day of the month of Karttika in the lunar calendar. This festivalcontinues for five days and concludes on the full moon day, which falls in mid October. This ritual, called the 'Tulasi Vivaha' inaugurates the annual marriage season in India.
