Thank you, Fitfoodie for the links to tulsi! I'm a big fan of tulsi. I grow it in the spring to make fresh infusions and teas all summer and fall. I dehydrate enough to last through winter. It is one of my favorite plant allies.
A few years back, I was drinking a tulsi infusion with a friend over a 2 hour period. When I got home there was an unpleasant surprise waiting for me, which I would have normally reacted to in fear, panic, and dread. Instead, my response was surprisingly grounding...non-active, non-judgemental, calm, balanced. I knew then it was the tulsi working through me. She guided/carried me so to speak.
I'm not surprised to read that tulsi has cholinesterase inhibitor activity. Tulsi is considered an adaptogen; it works on many levels.
I like Organic India tea! I'll try the tulsi / tumeric blend.
