Economics is one of the crucial aspects of current society. Anything that contributes to economic prosperity is always considered a boon. Tulsi is one such blessing with tremendous benefits, and one of them is its significant contribution to Economics.
Tulsi, a versatile plant, plays a crucial role in various economic sectors, contributing to the prosperity of communities that cultivate it. Tulsi has gained prominence in the herbal and pharmaceutical industries due to its diverse medicinal properties. The demand for Tulsi-based products, such as herbal teas, essential oils, and Ayurvedic medicines, has led to increased cultivation and processing activities, generating employment, opportunities, and income for farmers and local entrepreneurs.
Furthermore, Tulsi has found its way into the cosmetic and personal care industries, with its extracts being used in skincare and haircare products. Its aromatic qualities make it a valuable ingredient in perfumery and aromatherapy, adding another dimension to its economic significance. Beyond commercial applications, the cultivation of Tulsi also contributes to sustainable agricultural practices, enhancing soil fertility and biodiversity. Tulsi stems are used to create beads, which are used in ornaments. These ornaments have both scientific and spiritual benefits, making them one of the most prominent sources of income for thousands of people involved in their production.
Events like Tulsi Pujan explore another avenue for economic growth where Tulsi saplings are distributed and worshiped. This increases the demand for plants, pots, manure, and other items required for Tulsi Pujan. This boosts small-scale industries and local vendors to sell items that are not only Swadeshi but also environmentally friendly.
This impact is not limited to local levels; these products are spread across the nation and exported to other countries as well. It’s no wonder why Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu calls this plant “mother,” as exploring the economic dimensions of Tulsi unveils a landscape of opportunities, showcasing how a traditional herb can be a source of prosperity for individuals and communities alike.
Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu also emphasizes that Tulsi provides longevity, health, and vitality. He has successfully made several products at affordable rates, to be used by the common masses. Tulsi Ark, Homeo-Tulsi Tablets, Giloy Tulsi Ghanvati, Tulsi Beej Tablet, Sanjivani Tablet, Nirapad Vati, and Tulsi Mala are a few to name.
