As mentioned above, holy basil has ties to Ayurvedic medicine, which classifies every person’s energy into three components: kapha (earth), vata (air), and pitta (fire). Ideally, these three elements will work in balance, but they sometimes fall off-kilter. For those who have excess kapha, holy basil can help to reduce that earthy energy and bring the elements back into harmony.
Chinese medicine also recognizes holy basil as spiritually significant. In this tradition, practitioners use holy basil to craft a “shen tonic”, which is said to nurture the spirit.
In addition, some use holy basil as a simple balancing supplement or tincture; since it reduces stress, it’s great for balancing the chakras and finding your center.
