It’s easy to see why Tulsi Sweet Rose is one of Australia and New Zealand’s most popular Tulsi blends. This is truly a mystical, exotic blend that instantly transports me to faraway places in rural India. It’s a deeply nourishing, stress-relieving and immune-boosting blend that is equally as delicious as it is healthy.
Tulsi Sweet Rose is a delicate blend of organic Tulsi leaves finely balanced with soothing organic Chamomile flowers, cooling organic Rose petals, refreshing organic Lemongrass and the fragrant essence of Rose.
Here are just seven reasons why we love Tulsi Sweet Rose:
- Helps relieve stress and build stress resilience
This blend contains the depth of the Tulsi leaf trio: Rama Tulsi, Krishna Tulsi and Vana Tulsi. As one of the most powerful adaptogenic herbs, Tulsi is known to assist your body to better adapt to stress, be it physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or environmental, and to balance and build stress resilience. (1) Adaptogens work to bring the hormones of your adrenal system back into balance. Tulsi does this by lowering cortisol, the stress hormone. (1)
- Relaxes nerves and calms anxiety
Dried Chamomile flowers consist of flavonoids and terpenoids which are full of medicinal properties. (2) They are known to relax the nerves, calm anxiety and refresh the nervous system. Rose petals are known to relax nerves and of course to lift the spirits (3).
- Helps with Monthly Cycle and PMS
Rose is known to be beautifully calming for the emotional roller coaster that can accompany our monthly cycle – you know, those feelings of irritability and emotional instability. Chamomile is known to assist with menstrual pain by helping to balance oestrogen levels and reduce inflammation. (3)
- Assists with Insomnia
Chamomile has been traditionally used to treat insomnia and for its calming effects to induce sleep. It is often drunk before bedtime and has even been known as ‘a certain remedy for nightmares’ (2).
- Supports the immune system
Tulsi and Chamomile are recognised as stimulating and supporting to the immune system. Tulsi is also known for its overall tonifying effect that benefits systems throughout the entire body including the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive and nervous system. (2)
Tulsi and Chamomile are full of anti-oxidants! These will help your body fight free radicals and prevent oxidative damage to the skin, therefore assisting to slow down the aging process.
Tulsi, Chamomile, Rose and Lemongrass are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. They have been traditionally used to treat and relieve mild inflammations of the skin, mucous membranes, gastro intestines, and more. (3)
And perhaps best of all, it tastes delicious! We whole-heartedly recommend you surrender and enjoy this cup of sweet serenity.
