Basil, Holy (Ocimum sanctum), eugenol-rich, organic from India
Known in India as Tulsi, this oil has long been used in Ayurveda for respiratory issues, fevers, fungal infections, bacterial infections, mental clarity, and headaches. It also has a reputation for helping with neuropathy, opening the heart, and easing feelings of fear.
The scent is surprisingly mossy and herbal.
It should not be used by pregnant or nursing women.
Always dilute your essential oils in an unscented carrier oil like Sesame or Jojoba. A good general rule is 10 drops per ounce of carrier oil. Do not take essential oils internally. Always store essential oils out of heat and sunlight. Keep essential oils away from children.
