Delighted with Tulsi’s beauty and fragrance, we find it a joy to grow and tend this sacred one. During the summer months, we dance along with the bees as we gather the fragrant flowering tops, breathing in the spicy/sweet notes of this very special herb. Known for its ability to awaken the heart and mind, Tulsi also uplifts the spirit, supports the immune and endocrine systems, promotes clear, comfortable breathing, encourages circulation, strengthens digestion, and ultimately imparts a sense of peace and balance in one’s day. Enjoy!
Recommended Dosage: 20-40 drops OR 1/4 tsp, 2-3 times a day in juice or water.
