This sacred aromatic plant is cultivated in India, where it has been used for centuries and can be found growing in many Hindu homes. In the region's local Ayurvedic medicine, it is referred to as the
Elixir of Life.
In the wisdom of Ayurveda, Holy Basil, or more popularly known as Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) exhibits anti-oxidant, purifying, awakening, grounding benefits to skin, respiratory passages and psyche. Warm, soothing and slightly spicy, this hydrosol is wonderful to spray on the face or body.
Tulsi Leaf Hydrosol also has a balancing effect on the autonomic nervous system - in states of stress, the use of Holy Basil Hydrosol quickly brings a sense of calm and a reduction of tension. In addition to being an excellent environmental spray for meditation spaces, Tulsi (Holy Basil) Hydrosol makes a great choice for men who prefer a light herbal and slightly spicy aftershave or for those who want a non-floral skin tonic. The literature states that the hydrosol is extremely calming for the stomach as well.
