Basil Sanctum (Holy, Tulsi) Organic, Ocimum sanctum (1115) is refreshing, invigorating, meditative, a sacred oil from India where it is planted around sacred places to protect them against negative influences. The oil has a very high eugenol content and should not be confused with Ocimum basilicum, the culinary basil that we are familiar with. So use it with caution and even then in very low concentrations for aromatherapy massage. The oil is wonderful for inhaling and in a room diffuser. It is a component in many ayurvedic treatments, and has its main action as a support for the respiratory, immune and digestive systems. It blends well with citrus and floral oils. Holy Basil Organic is a pure therapeutic quality certified organic aromatherapy essential oil from India, obtained from the blossoms and plant.
