You may have noticed many varieties of tulsi tea lining the shelves of the tea & coffee aisle at your local natural foods store. The herb has many amazing stress busting and restorative effects, especially when it is taken either as a supplement or in tea every single day.
Tulsi Tea Benefits
What is Tulsi tea good for? It is a powerful adaptogen. That means it helps your body regulate hormones and deal with stress. That is its main use as an herbal supplement in general, and in Be Serene, but it also has other positive effects. As it reduces your stress, it can also reduce your blood pressure and help to regulate your blood sugar. Tulsi may also ease symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory infections, and help to treat digestive issues.
Hindu Tulsi Tea Legends
Tulsi, native to South Asia, is an important element in certain Hindu sects. It is seen as a representation of the goddess Lakshmi here on Earth. The legend says that Lakshmi was Vishnu’s favorite wife (he had three in total.) The other two wives were jealous and banished her to Earth to grow as a plant. Because her divine spirit lives on in this plant, it is considered sacred. This is why many Hindu homes have Tulsi plants growing in special pots or other containers near their homes. It is also why it is sometimes called Holy Basil.
How to Drink Tulsi Tea?
There are many infusions of this type of tea available. Some examples include Tulsi rose tea, Tulsi green tea, Tulsi turmeric ginger tea, and Tulsi lemon ginger tea. If you get loose leaf tea, you can make your own blends with your favorite herbs. Just boil the water, and then put in either the tea bags or the tea leaves. Steep it for 2-3 minutes and then it is ready to pour. You can drink it plain, or put milk and sugar in it according to your preference. For refreshing summer drinks, you can make cold brew Tulsi tea by steeping tea bags or leaves in cold or room temperature water overnight in the fridge.
Where to Buy Tulsi Tea?
You can get Tulsi tea in almost any health food store or natural foods store. You can find it at stores that specifically focus on Ayurvedic medicine. However, when you take Be Serene, you will already be getting your daily dose of all the Tulsi that you need. It is one of the five key stress fighting ingredients we have chosen to include in our supplement. The Tulsi we use is sustainably farmed and non-GMO. We have chosen the perfect amount to include in your daily regimen.
