Holy Basil is what is called an Adaptogenic Herbs - It and other herbs act to bring the body back in balance, increasing the body’s resistance to stress and adversity by non-specific, wide range of actions. The same herb may have a calming effect or energizing effect depending upon the condition of the body, and/or the amount of the herb taken. I tried this herb not in a tea but in a recipe I use I added a good measure of this herb to it and it tastes better than it ever has it tastes wonderful. I am trying to make my own curry and this certainly helps the taste and feeling while eating it.*
