The tulasi plant is a small perennial shrub in the mint family that is native to India and which is venerated by Hindus in general and Vaishnavas in particular. The botanical name is ocimum tenuiflorum or sometimes, ocimum sanctum, the sacred Basil. In Hindi and other north Indian languages the name is written just a tulsi.

There are three varieties of tulasi plants used by Hindus. There is a dark variety called syama or krishna tulasi, a white variety called rama tulasi, and an extremely hardy variety sometimes called Fujian or Thai tulasi. Strict Vaishnavas do not accept this latter tulasi as true tulasi although this variety is the most common of all since it is easiest to grow. This Thai tulasi is distinguished from the two former varieties because it is much larger. The syama or krishna tulasi is the smallest variety and is the most difficult to grow.

`Tulsi` is a Sanskrit name. `Tulsi means one that does not tolerate.
Tulsi (tool-see) is a Sanskrit name of both a Goddess and a sacred, medicinal plant from India that is used as an offering in rituals.
Tulasi" in Sanskrit literally means "the incomparable one". or without any comparision.

The tulasi plant also has many medicinal properties. Extracts from tulasis are used in traditional Ayurvedic medicines for common colds, headaches, stomach problems and even heart problems. Preparations of tulasi are often made into a tea or a powder or even just eaten as fresh leaves along with ghee, clarified butter.
