तुलसी के महत्व का वर्णन हमारे शास्त्रों में भी है और विज्ञान में भी| स्कंद पुराण में कहा गया है कि जिस घर में तुलसी का बगीचा होता है एवं पूजन होता है उसमें यमदूत प्रवेश नहीं करते|
Tulsi is equally good for Spiritual, Environmental and Medical purposes. #तुलसी_पूजन_दिवस

Tulsi or Holy Basil has been part of Indian Household since ages. It belongs to Ocimum tenuiflorum botanical group. It is easily found in India. It is herbal and medicinal in nature! If you plant a tulsi tree, it acts as anti-bacterial protection towards its surrounding atmosphere. Tulsi is Eco-friendly!
Though people are calling usage of Basil or celebration of Tulsi Diwas as Saffronization of Christmas, there is not even an iota of doubt that Tulsi is way better than any other plant or tree. Also, the usage of resources to plant tulsi and use it is frugal.
Just like we save water on hold, curb noises on Diwali, Prevent immersion of Ganpati idols in rivers and lakes, let’s take a step ahead and switch over to eco-friendly Christmas and use our eco-friendly Indian pine tree, i.e., Tulsi plant, in the coming times.
Save the Planet.
