Sipping on my Tulsi tea wondering why it isn’t more popular in Oz. This blend of tulsi, calendula and rose petals was organically grown and then dehydrated by a friend, who kindly feeds my Tulsi habit. Tulsi is an adaptogenic herb – rejuvenating, immune boosting, helping to restore the bodies negative reaction to stress, and so much more. You’ll find it in health food stores as a supplement, tea or liquid tincture. I have 3 varieties of this sacred ‘queen of herbs’ growing in my garden, thanks to above mentioned friend. I also found some seedlings at @mullumfarmersmarket organic seedling stand.
If you do grow it yourself at home, add the fresh leaves to your salad, stir fry, curry and smoothie. If you can’t find Tulsi seeds or plants at your local nursery, ask them to order it in for you, or look on-line. You’ll find it in health food stores as a supplement, tea or liquid tincture.
