Description: Holy Basil essential oil, sometimes called “Tulsi” essential oil, is derived from a species of basil that is naturally high in eugenol. It is very popular in India where Ayurvedic practices exist. It is a top note in perfumery and has a strong aroma that is spicy, warm, sweet and herbaceous. Aromatically, it can uplift one’s spirits and bring warmth and ease anxiety and stress. Because of its high content of eugenol, holy basil essential oil is a skin irritant and should be diluted well when used in topical applications. It’s known to treat many conditions such as bronchitis, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and eczema. It can also be used as an insect repellent. Holy Basil Oil’s therapeutic properties include antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic.
