1. Add glow to face:
Rubbing finely powdered dry Tulsi on the face like a loose powder adds glow to the face and removes dark spots.
2. Prevention of blackheads:
Wet the top side of the Tulsi and place one leaf on each side of your nose for 5 minutes, and then wash your face. It prevents blackheads from cropping up.
3. Prevention of acne and pimples:
Mix sandalwood paste, neem paste and tulsi paste in equal proportion with rose water. Apply for 15 minutes and wash with normal water. Acne and pimples will think twice before appearing on your face.😊
4. Lightens scars and marks:
Take tulsi paste and besan in equal quantity and make a face pack using rose water. Apply for 15 minutes. Find yourself glowing with a clear skin.
To get all the benefits as discussed earlier, make Tulsi Tea at home.
Tulsi leaves 1/4 cup
Water 4 cups
Honey 2 tsp
Lemon juice 1/2 tsp (optional )
The traditional way is to boil water and tulsi leaves and when it reduces to half, filter it and add honey and drink.
But for additional flavor and to enhance the medicinal properties, add pepper and clove (a bit crushed ) at the time of boiling.
Lemon juice is optional.
Drink it daily and feel the difference.

Tulsi Vivah is the ceremonial marriage of the Tulsi plant to the Hindu God Vishnu or his Avatar Krishna. The Tulsi Vivah signifies the end of the monsoon and the beginning of the Hindu wedding season.
And I don’t want to miss this fact that when British came to India, they were plagued by mosquito menace and hence planted tulsi and neem all around their bungalows. They called tulsi the mosquito repellent plant.
Now before I give rest to my typing, let me share with you the mantra Ma has taught to chant while offering water to Tulsi…
महाप्रसादजननी सव॔सौभाग्यवध्दिनी ।
आधिव्यिधि जरा मुक्त तुलसी त्वं नमोस्तुते ।।
Aadhi vyaadhi jara muktam
Tulsi tvaam namostute।।
