Basic 6 Essential Oils Kit
Our organic holy basil essential oil is steam-distilled from the holy basil plant (Ocimum tenuiflorum). This popular herb is native to India and cultivated through Southeast Asia. Traditionally, holy basil is used therapeutically in Ayurvedic medicine. Holy basil is also known as Tulsi, who is the avatar of Lakshmi in Hinduism. Those who practice Hinduism often plant it in their garden as a part of worship.
Aromatically, holy basil oil has a rich herbaceous scent similar to sweet basil but stronger. Inhaling holy basil oil may bring notes of cinnamon, clove, and eucalyptus. Holy basil oil is used in meditative practices but can also be energizing. Use it during energizing yoga practices, for any type of meditation, or simply to clear your head.
Uses & Benefits
Holy basil oil is considered safe when used externally. We recommend diluting holy basil in a carrier oil like jojoba or almond oil for topical use. Take precautions if you have allergies to this family of plants or have low blood sugar.
