Is your basket half full or half empty?
Harvesting Tulsi (aka Holy Basil) and taking in the sweet and fragrant aroma of the Tulsi blossoms. There’s something magical about hand-harvesting these herbs; there is an energetic exchange of gratitude that takes place.
The plants are happier and healthier when culled and pruned; and we collectively are happier and healthier when receiving their nutritional and medicinal offerings.
This bounty of medicine will make its way into the solar dehydrators where they will be slow-cured in raw form. These dehydrated leaves and blossoms will greet our herbalists and tea-makers in a few days time (some herbs can take up to a week), when the plants are at their highest concentration levels of vitamins and minerals. These potent loose Tulsi leaves will be blended with other Kauai Farmacy garden herbs into masterful healing blends like our Love Potion (chai-flavored) tea and our Children’s Wellness (sweet, hibiscus-flavored) tea.
From these baskets to your cup in less than two weeks time is unheard of when it comes to the art of herbal tea-making and plant medicine. We do this because we believe that this is the ultimate way to preserve the true intention of the plants, along with its subtle yet powerful consciousness.
Love, the Kauai Farmacy Team. xoxoxo
