Anti-fungal properties of Ocimum sanctum Linn: A short review

Vitul Agarwal

Fungal infections are increasingly becoming common today. Humans have only a limited arsenal against such infections and the resistant strains of fungi only make matters worse. Ocimum sanctum Linn. (Tulsi) has long been known as a medicinal plant and now, its effects have also encompassed anti-fungal properties. New research in the field only indicates that Tulsi extract is a viable alternative to other fungicides and can be used as a drug to combat infection. New research should be directed towards this bend, and investigate the extract as a drug to be used against fungal infections. This will ensure that, people who require this extract can be administered with it as soon as possible. In this review, a short summary of the recent advances in the field is given as well areas of possible research.
