Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, is one of the most sacred plants in India and is considered “The Queen of the Herbs” for its restorative and spiritual properties. Also spelt Tulasi or Thulasi, it has been used for thousands of years to support a healthy response to stress, natural detoxification, and restore balance and harmony. Our infusions are not only delicious and organic, they are nature’s perfect rejuvenative.
Tulsi (Holy Basil): Benefits to Body & Mind
Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body’s healthy reactions to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions and restore balance.
SUGGESTED USE: Pour freshly boiled water over an infusion bag in a cup. Cover and steep for 5 – 10 minutes or longer. Double the strength when serving iced.
Do not use if pregnant or nursing without consulting a physician.

Green Tea is made of steamed leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea’s health benefits have been studied extensively over the last few decades. It’s a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Antioxidants interact with and stabilise free radicals and may prevent some of their damage. Researchers are also investigating green tea’s possible effect on conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.**
