Organic Tulsi – Ayurvedic – online sale
Also known as: Sacred Basil, Tulasi or Holy Basil. Tulsi has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda for its diverse healing properties. It is mentioned by Charaka in the Charaka Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic text. Tulsi is considered to be an adaptogen, balancing different processes in the body, and helpful for adapting to stress. Marked by its strong aroma and astringent taste, it is regarded in Ayurveda as a kind of “elixir of life” and believed to promote longevity.
How to brew Ayurvedic herbal blends: stir up the blend and place the correct amount of loose leaves and ingredients into an infuser in a teapot (or you can use a coffee plunger or small infuser in a cup or mug). Add boiling water, steep for around five minutes (Longer for stronger taste, a shorter time for a milder brew. Adjust brew time to suit your tastebuds.) Then, sit back, relax and enjoy. Remember Ayurvedics can be re-infused a number of times – just add more boiling water to the leaves to top up your drink. Not usually taken with milk. Can be sweetened with pure sugar or honey. Use approx 1 teaspoon (2g) per cup and adjust to personal taste.
