A powerful aromatic herb used extensively both in Ayurvedic clinical and folk medicine, Tulsi, or holy basil, is considered a purifier of the mind, body, and spirit. Tulsi has a special place in Hindu courtyards across India, where it is planted for its auspicious and protective powers. Its unique blend of medicinal and fragrant qualities have earned this sharp, fresh herbaceous-minty oil the title "Elixir of Life". With powerful therapeutic benefits, our tulsi essential oil is an aromatic jewel that belongs in every natural medicine chest.
This powerful basil oil has been used for centuries and is cherished for its protective and uplifting nature. Tulsi, meaning "the incomparable one", is thought to embody a purifying radiance that refines body, mind and spirit. Tulsi brilliantly boosts vitality and can be used daily to maintain resilient health. When diffused, Tulsi will promote vitality for the whole family and should therefore always be on hand, especially when the children become congested. Reminiscent of freshly cut basil, Tulsi’s unique fragrance qualities are spicy, sweet and herbaceous-minty, with a pronounced warm, clove-like accent. Its effects are warming, clarifying and uplifting.
