Nearly every day I harvest baskets full of tulsi. Some goes on to the drying racks and some into the still. The action of harvesting is aromatherapy from the source; it transports you into a meditative state of mind. Crisp and transforming, it is easily a replacement for the morning coffee as far as my mind is concerned, but my kapha type body needs a little more right now as the temperatures cool down and the seasons begin to change. A ritual of herbal teas, aromatherapy and exercise (yoga or a walk in the woods) is helpful to support the body and mind at this time of transition. I have a new blend in the webshop called Transition which is appropriate for personal or seasonal changes.
