Description
Tulsi essential oil, also known as “holy basil,” is a chemotype of basil that’s rich in a component called “eugenol.” Eugenol also shows up in clove bud and cinnamon leaf—it gives tulsi oil a fresh, sweet, spicy aroma. Tulsi is an “adaptogen,” with an intuitive sense for creating wellness based on what the body needs (for example, it can be either energizing or relaxing). Our organically crafted tulsi essential oil is steam distilled from the flowers and leaves of herbs cultivated in India, where it has been treasured for centuries.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
