Herbs for Meditation
For thousands of years, the sages and gurus of India have used herbs to support their spiritual practices.
From greater mental clarity to easing discomfort from long meditation sessions, herbs offer a wide range of benefits to meditation practitioners.
In fact, the entire system of Ayurveda was designed to increase longevity, health and mental clarity in order to increase an individual’s chances of attaining enlightenment.
For calm energy and balance
Tulsi (Holy Basil), revered in India as a sacred plant, offers the meditator a wide range of benefits. As an adaptogen, Tulsi helps create balance both in the body and the mind. Tulsi provides a calm, stable energy that keeps you from falling asleep on your meditation cushion while simultaneously calming the mind. Tulsi is a fantastic asset to meditators. Learn more

For easing phsyical discomfort
Turmeric excels at helping the body’s response to inflammation. Many meditators, both first-timers and those with years of practice, experience discomfort in prolonged sessions on the meditation cushion. Much of this discomfort is a result of cramped muscles, and can interfere with the actual practice, especially for beginners. Turmeric is one of our strongest allies in creating True Wellness.
