Tulsi, Ocimum sanctum or tenuiflorum, is the Holy Basil, the living avatar of goddess Lakshmi. This plant is often planted at the entrance to holy temples or houses, and is worshipped & prayed to in India. Tulsi beads are also woven into sacred religious jewellery. The plant is warming and cooling with a sweet, pungent taste. This makes her perfect for stuck congested conditions, with an uplifting nature, especially to the spirit & mind. It can stimulate the nervous system into a place of calmness, and breaking depression. It can expectorate the lungs, to improve a calm, deep breath. It can boost all immune functions & aid in the fighting of infections. She is believed to open the crown chakra, to invite spirit communication into the body. An angelic plant. We have processed home grown plants for this tincture.
Please consult your health practitioner and take the time time to do your own research before consuming and plant preparation. Ensure there are no interactions, if you are currently taking medication.
Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. It helps the medicine to also diffuse quickly into the bloodstream.
Alcohol is warming and medicine unto itself. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble.
To be really specific: the amount of alcohol in tinctures is incredibly tiny. Less than you will get from eating a few pieces of bread.
If you are taking 20 drops of a 60 percent alcohol tincture every hour for an acute condition, you will get less than 2ml of alcohol over the course of a day.
If you are taking a general dose of 20 drops three times daily, this is less alcohol than you will get from eating two slices of bread.
If alcohol is a serious problem for you, then consider alternative extracts.
Please store in a cool dark place, out of sunlight, heat & air exposure.
