Namaste :D
A few months ago, before i found Hinduism and seriously looked into all the things surrounding Sanatana Dharma and Indian culture, there was a sample of tea at Earth Fare (a chain kinda like Whole Foods) It was tulsi with vanilla flavor. I had a sample and bought a box because it tasted good and also said "stress relief" on it (always good to have something for that on hand!)

I am just now finding out all the benefits of the fresh leaves (fever reduction, skin disorders, toothpaste, insect bites) but what are all of the things the dried leaves could be used for?

Thank you :)
