Benefits and uses
The dark green leaves of the Ocimum sanctum ct eugenol herb create a fresh, sweet, minty, spicy, herbaceous essential oil. Along with assisting with minor pain and inflammation relief, tulsi essential oil is often used to help ease unwanted muscle spasms as well as reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial, fungal, or viral activity. In addition to having antioxidant benefits, it can also help boost the immune system. Tulsi essential oil is classified as an adaptogen and can either stimulate or sedate, depending on what the body needs at that moment. As this essential oil is high in eugenol, we recommend a 1-3% dilution when applied topically to avoid any unnecessary skin irritation.
Emotionally and energetically, tulsi essential oil warms and uplifts. It fosters greater self-confidence and promotes self-assurance. This essential oil is helpful when dealing with situational anxiety or depression.
