Holy Basil - Pure Essential Oil

Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum or sanctum), also known as tulsi, is a type of basil native to the Indian subcontinent. It is sacred to Hindus, and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for its adaptogenic properties

It is traditionally used to reduce stress and calm the mind without causing drowsiness, as well as for increasing memory and cognitive function, and promoting confidence. It is a powerful antimicrobial agent. It may also have aphrodisiac qualities related to uplifting mood.
