Tulsi essential oil | Ocimum tenuiflorum

Traditional use: Holy basil (Ocimum sanctum), commonly known as tulsi, is an outstanding herb. In Indian culture it’s been worshipped for thousands of years – that is why Hindu prefer to call it a holy plant. To most of the people basil is usually associated with a distinctive, herbal smell that will certainly be a great fit to many dishes. It is worth noting, however, that in the kitchen we usually use the leaves of common basil (Ocimum basilicum). Even though both of those plants are similar, it is the holy basil that has a special place in natural medicine and aromatherapy. Its deep, spicy herbal-mint aroma has been checked thoroughly and described in detail in medical textbooks, particularly Ayurvedic. But this type of basil is not out of the question when it comes to cooking! In fact, some people prefer to use holy basil as a spice in food and drinks.

Holy basil essential oil certainly deserves our attention because of its health-promoting properties. Traditionally it has been used to release the tension in muscles and reduce pain of different origin. In addition to that, tulsi supports proper functioning of the immune system, makes it easier to destroy pathogens and helps to deal with inflammation that accompanies infections. Some people use it in cosmetics because it helps to cleanse the skin and give it a vibrant look, mostly by destroying free oxygen radicals. The relaxing powers of holy basil are also very important. It affects the central nervous system, helps to clear the mind of thoughts and gives more focus. Many Ayurveda enthusiasts use it as an addition to a meditation routine or simply inhale the aroma of tulsi before going to sleep.

Occurrence: Holy basil (Ocimum sanctum) is a perennial plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family. It usually reaches the height of 30-60 cm and grows on a thin, hairy stem. Its small, oval leaves with serrated edges have a green color, sometimes becoming dark red. They release a strong smell thanks to the high amount of essential oil. The small purple flowers are gathered in clusters. 

Tulsi basil naturally occurs in the tropical climate, but the crops of this plant can be found in many countries. For religious and traditional purposes holy basil is especially popular in India. This is the country of origin for the plants that were used to obtain the essential oil available in our shop.

Biochemistry: Tulsi essential oil contains many active substances. The most important ones include: methyl eugenol (the highest amount), beta-caryophyllene, germacrene D, borneol, linalool. In smaller amounts there can also be found: alpha-pinene, camphor and limonene.

The oil available in our shop is produced with a method of steam distillation from the leaves of holy basil (Ocimum sanctum). Thanks to that every drop is optimally condensed and has an aroma bouquet unique for this plant.

Aroma: Middle note of high intensity and low durability.

Fun fact: The Hindu name of holy basil – tulsi – refers to the name of goddess Tulsi – one of the most important spirits in the pantheon of Hindu religion. People who worship Tulsi believe that the holy basil is a manifestation of the goddess on Earth.
