How does Holy Basil work?

"Chemicals in holy basil are thought to decrease pain and swelling (inflammation). Other chemicals might lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. There is interest in using holy basil seed oil for cancer. Beginning research suggests that the oil can slow progression and improve survival rate in animals with certain types of cancer. Researchers think this benefit may be explained by the oil’s ability to act as an antioxidant." (via WebMD)

I buy all the teas I can at Capitol Teas.  I was thankful they had this variety.  I received the product very quickly.  As with all Capital Teas, it has excellent quality and taste.

Great tea and customer service. February 1, 2014
Reviewer: Valerie Noyes from Fallon, NV United States  
I love the Holy Basil tea. My son introduced me to it and I had to place an order. There was a small snafu with the website. I emailed the shop, got a prompt and very courteous reply and got my order placed quickly. Shipping was incredibly fast given I'm 3000 miles away.  Excellent overall experience. I have been browsing their catalogue and am looking forward to placing another order.
