A fresh batch of Tulsi basil is almost ready for harvest!

Seen in some ancient cultures as the holiest plant on earth, Tulsi is still revered today as a sacred plant. For thousands of years, Tulsi has been grown for its health benefits. Native to India, the "Queen of Herbs," is a powerful herb ideal for use in skincare and herbal medicine.

Tulsi contains the volatile oil, eugenol, which is used as a flavor or aroma ingredient in teas, meats, sugars, and perfumes. Tulsi is unique in that it is rich in many other volatile oils in addition to eugenol. Another important constituent among tulsi's arsenal of active agents is a compound called ursolic acid. It is commonly used in the cosmetic industry for its ability to support healthy, elastic, and youthful skin.

By growing this herb inside our controlled environment, we give our crops the exact environmental and nutrient conditions required to give us the highest quality compounds. Providing food and cosmetic manufacturers with a fresh, year-round supply of plant-based natural ingredients!

It's hard to herb our enthusiasm but we are excited to be officially launching our lemon balm air/linen fresher. This refreshing, all natural product is steam distilled from our freshly harvested lemon balm herb. Free of additives, preservatives and locally made fresh!
It's kind of a big dill!

One of the best parts of running our indoor farm is testing some of the less common herbs for the development of new products. We're currently working with pineapple sage to see if we can pull these refreshing scent compounds from the plant and include them with one of our air fresher products like lemon balm. In a week or two, these plants will be harvested, distilled, and tested. With any luck, we will have a new natural ingredient that smells great and is full of anti-inflammatory and ant-bacterial properties.

Hard to believe that we harvested roughly 70% of this thyme not even two weeks ago and its just about ready for another trimming!

Growing herbs inside our controlled environment, we can grow 3x-4x faster than outdoors without the use of GMO's, pesticides or folic treatments all while getting better tastes and aromas! Thyme is one of our favourite plants to grow as its a versatile herb used in cooking or skin toner products.

What is a hydrosol and how are they made? Commonly referred to as floral water, hydrosols are becoming popular in all-natural beauty products. Less concentrated and more mellow than essential oils, hydrosols still possess many of the therapeutic and aromatic properties of the oil. Plant material is placed in a copper still and steam distilled without the use of chemicals or additives. Once cooled, essential oil floats to the top of the hydrosol. The two parts are separated, bottled and ready to use either directly to skin to help skincare or as an ingredient in cosmetic products like soaps, facemasks, lotions or shampoo!

Check out this video to see how we are using our indoor farm to make our hydrosols in a way that eliminates the risk of contamination from allergens, pesticides, pests and disease.

Balance oily skin and help reduce acne-related inflammation with our thyme hydrosol. Extracted from our sustainably grown herbs, our thyme is steam distilled through our small batch copper stills without the use of additives or preservatives. This leaves us with an intensely herbal aroma and a hydrosol rich in antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

This Not Your Average Basil!

Holy basil isen't like the sweet basil found in your marinara sauce or grocery store. This medicinal herb, also known as Tulsi, is native to Southeast Asia. It has a long history in Eastern cultures as a medicine used for its relaxing, antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.

This is one of the first Holy basil plants we've raised inside our farm. Once matured, we will extract the various compounds from the plant and use them in aromatherapy products. If all goes according to plan, we'll be growing Tulsi year-round so more people can enjoy this fantastic herb.
