Abundant Tulsi

Written by Flora, Posted in Herbal Medicine, Local Plants

2016.7 tulsi 600x450Are you feeling the overwhelming abundance of midsummer?

Sometimes it can feel a little too much to take in, and, we'll be so grateful for everything we harvested when we get to the darker leaner times in winter! One of our staff favorites is holy basil, also known as tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), now in peak flower!

How do we love tulsi? Let us count the ways!

  • Brewing overnight infusions
  • Pesto!
  • Rubbing her fragrance on the skin
  • Adding a few leaves to a warm bath
  • Falling asleep with some of her leaves and flowers under your pillow 

Have you too been smitten by this lovely lady? Oh, let's not forget to dry or tincture some to have for the rest of the year!
