Types of Tulsi Honey –
Tulsi Honey can be of 3 types
- From the Tulsi Plantation
- From any plantation but infused with Tulsi extract/leaves
- From Tulsi Plantation and infused with Tulsi extract/leaves
The no. 3 is the most powerful one.
How it’s made –
To understand this better, just imagine a honey bee hovering over this Tulsi plantation field and land on a flower of a Tulsi plant. The honey bee sucks the nector from the Tulsi flower and hops on to the next flower and then to the next and so on…. and all Tulsi plant flowers. The nectar of any flower is the purest form and contains all the nutrition that plant possesses. And then the honey bee makes the honey from that Tulsi nectar.
Once that Tulsi honey is extracted, it is then mixed with a set ratio of Tulsi extracts and Tulsi leaves and left in a temperature controlled tank for over 30 days. This period is called infusion period and needs to be done below 42o C to ensure that all the nutrients are intact.

Which Brand do we suggest –
There are few brands making Tulsi Honey, but mostly are not making no. 3 type. I came across a brand FORET, which claims it to be the 3rd type. Hence I ordered and used for over 3 months. I must say that it tastes premium with strong tulsi aroma and taste. They claim that it is extracted cold and infused cold, which is exactly I was searching for. I believe that prevention is better than cure. Believe it or not the real natural medicines are already provided to us by mother nature in terms of herbs, food and water. I trust that this company keeps going well and provide the pure food at reasonable prices.
