Tulsi, otherwise known as the Indian holy Basil, has been worshipped by all Hindus because of its miraculous healing properties for centuries. Most Indian households grow it and use it in their daily routines. Tulsi is mainly used as a herb infusion or tea in Ayurveda, for respiratory support, preventing and treating coughs, colds and viral infections. Combined with ginger, amla, turmeric, long pepper in the right proportions, Pavilion's Tusli Ginger Pipli makes up a powerful blend with a purpose to protect us from infections, support normal breathing and maintain a healthy immunity. This formula is a Kapha balance so we advise you to have it after food or follow taking it with a drink of warm plant based milk.
