    I have only recently begun to explore holy basil, primarily using it as an adaptogen. I would love to experiment more with holy basil as a single herb to discover from my own experience how I percieve its energetic qualities…

    I am still learning about Tulsi. I do know that it used in henna treatments for deep hair conditioning and I like to drink Tusi tea to help ease stress. I have also learned that burning basil oil to release the fragrance helps with concentration. I ‘m going to use it while my boys are doing homework.

    I tried to follow AB on Pinterest, but I hit a following limit (!?), tried unfollowing a few folks and still couldn’t follow her. Will try again later today. Most interested in strolling through her jewelry and “unique women in business” boards.

    The product on AB I’d most like to try is the Dead Sea Mud shampoo bar. I use handmade soap, and have not been able to find a shampoo that A) has no artificial fragrance in it, and B) actually works. lol

    I’m surprised I haven’t stumbled across your pinterest board yet! I follow Learning Herbs. Alas, I was prevented from following you just now due to some limit, but after a quick google, I’m sure I’ll be able to follow in a few hours.

    I love Holy Basil. An herbalist recommended it to me last summer when I had constant stomach aches. She helped me attribute the illness to my inability to make big decisions I was facing in my life at the time. Holy Basil helped me adapt and make decisions, I fell in love with the plant and healed quickly <3

    my fave from AB? the lavender peppermint soap sounds heavenly!
