Buying a water purification system that removes fluoride (like this one) can get really pricey. A lot of us are stuck with dangerous fluoride in our water. The majority of people get those mini-water filters which don’t remove fluoride. But here is a secret (which a lot of people do not know about) – you can remove fluoride naturally with just one ingredient – TULSI PLANT (find it here) It’s the most affordable way known to us!

A major secret revealed: The most Affordable Way to Remove Fluoride Naturally
This incredible ground breaking discovery was done by researchers from Rajasthan University. Though we do have means available to us to remove fluoride from water with fancy purification systems, not all of us can buy them. However, this natural method is not only cheap, it’s safe and effective. What researched did is they soaked 75 mg of Holy Basil leaves in 100ml of water that contained over 7.4 parts per million of fluoride. After soaking the leaves in the water for 8 hours, they discovered that the fluoride was reduced to only 1.1 parts per million. In fact, the world health organization acknowledges that the safe level of fluoride in drinking water is between 0.5 to 1 parts per million.
What’s the Tulsi Plant?
Tulsi has been used for centuries in Ayurveda medicine as one of the main medicinal plants that possesses great healing powers. Both leaves and stems of the plant are used in medicine. The Tulsi plant is one of the most sacred, most reverent herbs in India. The Tulsi plant contains oleanolic acid, carvacol, linalool, ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid, eugenol, and other active compounds that have been proven to exhibit unbelievable health benefits. The Tulsi plant also possesses powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also exhibits analgesic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It’s used as a traditional Ayurvedic remedy for fevers, bronchitis, coughs, colds, malaria, cures rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, relieves spasms, and even used as an insect repellant.
For medical purposes both fresh leaves and dried powder made from the tulsi plant are used as herbal teas, infusions and tinctures. Tulsi tea contains a large amount of nutrient and antioxidant substances, removes toxins from the body, improves immunity, improves digestion, relieves stress, colds and has calming and warming effects. (This is my favorite Tulsi tea) Thus, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on removing fluoride (a toxic sedative) from your water.
Thanks for your article on tulsi and fluoride. While it great to know that if I steep my tulsi tea for 8 hours, it will have less fluoride, I don’t know how to apply this knowledge about Holy Basil to my life other by Only drinking tea. How does using Tulsi obviate the need for a water filter? Are you saying that by taking Tulsi internally we this detoxify our body burden of fluoride? If so, what’s the mechanism?
Many thanks in advance
Hi Victoria! You can take the tulsi leaves and soak them in water overnight. Drain the water and it should be good for drinking.
Very interesting. Does the water taste like tea after it’s been soaked? Is it good to cook with afterwards? Is soaking at room temperature best? Is there a best way to strain the leaves after soaking?
Hi Jenna! The water doesn’t taste like tea. It’s perfect to cook with and you can definitely soak the leaves at room temperature.
This is the start of some interesting information, but the article leaves much to be desired. 75 mg of leaves to 100ml of water, I believe that’s about a teaspoon to a glass of water. That wouldn’t be terribly hard to do for drinking water or tea, but at that ratio you’re going to need more than a cup of holy basil to boil pasta or make soup & it is going to significantly impact the flavor of the finished product. At that ratio my guess is about a gallon of holy basil would be needed for a bath or shower, I see no reasonable way to actually use it in a shower & it would be a pretty soupy bath- but bathing in water with fluoride is as concerning as drinking or cooking with it. And then we also need to know what do you do with the basil after it’s been used? I’m guessing it’s no longer safe to eat if it’s now laden with fluoride, is it safe to compost?
Good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.
