Using the embedded hg command line

I'm really happy that SourceTree has Mercurial embedded. On the odd occasion I would like to run an hg command from the CLI, like

hg status

To which I get

hg: command not found

Can I make modifications to my environment path to get the command line working for the embedded version, or do I have to install and manage a separate instance of Mercurial if I want to accasionally use the command line?

I'm using SourceTree OS X version 1.7.2

Jannie: I think you'll have better luck installing a package manager like Homebrew. You can then install Mercurial with

brew install mercurial
