Holy Basil -Tulsi one of my favorite plant allies. Sitting in space with her energy is easy, calming and joyful. Consuming the herbs I've watched grow, supported and loved feels so powerful -it's their turn to support and show love to me and I graciously accept their healing gifts.
It's festival season here in Bengaluru .. went flower shopping to the local flower and vegetable market with my sister which is close to the neighborhood where I grew up as a kid .. so nostalgic. I remember every nook and corner of the streets .. all the shops . Familiar faces of shop owners .. met my elementary school friend ! #gandhibazzar#fresh flowers #roses#mums#lotusbuds#tulsi#holybasil#neemleaves
After doing yoga with my clients today we started talking about medicinal plants. It just so happens that they have Holy Basil growing in front of their house. Manjoula was kind enough to dig up some of the babies for me and send me home with a small bag of seeds. Soon this stuff will be growing all over the house! It is great as a tea or tincture. Sometimes I can't wait and I'll just start munching on the leaves. 🌱 . Already a great day!
