The benefits of Tulsi are no secret to us! We have planted it in our homes since time immemorial and worshiped it. A plant with so many benefits is surely fit to be worshiped!

Tulsi purifies the air and has numerous medicinal benefits. Some of which are these:

  • Has detoxifying properties
  • Acts as immunity booster
  • Has antibiotic, antibacterial properties
  • Helps relieve stress
  • Cures respiratory conditions like cold, cough
  • Is rich in phytonutrients, essential oils, Vitamin A and C

Our children would benefit immensely from consuming Tulsi leaves daily. The only deterrent here, can be its sharp taste and therefore it may get rejected by our children!

Here are some hacks to help you make your child (even as small as 1 yr old!) consume Tulsi.
