Holy Basil Oil Fun Facts

Holy Basil is revered in India as the "Queen of Herbs" and is considered a symbol of purity and divine protection.

This oil is known for its potential adaptogenic properties, helping the body adapt to stress and promoting overall resilience.

In Hinduism, the Holy Basil plant, along with its essential oil extracts, are considered sacred and highly valued for their medicinal properties.

What is Holy Basil Oil?

Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi, has its origins in north central India. It is a sacred herb deeply intertwined with the culture and traditions of the region. Over time, Holy Basil spread throughout the eastern world tropics and became revered not only for its spiritual significance but also for its potential health benefits. 

Traditionally, this herb held a special place in Indian traditions and was often planted near temples and homes. Consuming Tulsi daily was believed to prevent disease, promote general health, wellbeing, and longevity. Its consumption was also credited with enhancing complexion, giving rise to its reputation as a beautifying herb. Additionally, Tulsi's status as an adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress, earned it significant recognition. 

Extracted from the plant, Holy Basil Essential Oil is now recognized for its potent antimicrobial properties, including antibacterial and antifungal effects. The oil also has natural repellent properties which may deter mosquitoes and other insects. Known for its delightful fragrance, which is often described as warm, spicy, and slightly sweet, it is often blended with other oils to create customized fragrances. 

In addition, preliminary studies suggest that inhaling the scent of Holy Basil Essential Oil may have potential benefits in reducing anxiety and stress. The aroma is believed to have a calming effect on the mind, making it a popular oil in aromatherapy.
