Holy Basil – or Tulsi – is a wonderful herb to help relieve nervous tension. That and chamomile are always in my apothecary!
Tulsi can also help ailments such as asthma, flu, coughs, and colds but it also is very beneficial for lowering stress and even minor gastrointestinal issues. Its often referred to as the Queen of Herbs because of its many uses.
Today, I’m using it in my new Tuslimint Tea.
2 tsp Tulsi, dried
1 tsp chamomile, dried
1/2 tsp mint, dried
2 whole dried rosehips
1/2 tsp rose petals, dried
1 tsp lemon balm, dried
1/2 lemon peel, dried
1/2 tsp lavender flowers, dried
Either put into a tea infuser or just in the mug and pour 8-10 ounces of just boiled water. Let steep 15 to 20 minutes covered. Strain if necessary and sweeten with honey, sugar or stevia. You can heat it back up if desired.
