Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum), also known as tulsi (meaning “the incomparable one”), has been historically used in Ayurveda as an adaptogen, which are ingredients that help your body adapt to stress. The small, bushy holy basil shrub is native to India, but it’s an important plant in many traditional and folk health systems in Southeast Asia, including Ayurveda. Ayurveda centers on a holistic approach to health that focuses on preserving and promoting good health through healthy lifestyle practices — including regular consumption of adaptogenic herbs that have the power to enhance the body’s ability to maintain balance. Holy basil can be incredibly beneficial to human health, primarily due to its fascinating composition of its essential oil.
USDA Certified Organic
We're proud to be USDA Certified Organic — it means we bottle essential oils sourced from plants grown without the use of prohibited chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers, toxic human sewage sludge, biosolids or toxic solvents. Our USDA Certified Organic essential oils are always non-GMO and free of synthetic fragrances.
Potency From Seed to Bottle
So many essential oils lack potency — but we don’t believe in shortcuts when it comes to the quality of our oils. It typically takes a large amount of the original plant to create just a few drops of high-quality essential oil, so that’s what we do.
Holy Basil Essential Oil is incredibly versatile, from diffusing in your home, to creating a DIY room spray with oil and water.
Caution: Possible skin irritant. Avoid contact with eyes.
Aromatherapy essential oils are made using dozens of different plants, flowers, herbs, roots and trees grown all over the world — which have proven, powerful effects on boosting overall physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Should I always opt for USDA Certified Organic essential oils?
In short, yes. Conventional essential oils are generally sourced from plants grown with harsh chemicals and pollutants. Imagine condensing plants sprayed with toxins, bottling them up and diffusing throughout your home. USDA Certified Organic essential oils, on the other hand, are grown without these synthetic chemicals so you never have to second guess.

Our essential oils do not include a dropper - instead, they have an easy-to-use lid that allows one drop to come through the top at a time. That helps avoid spilling or dropping too much at once.
How many drops come in this bottle?
The exact amount of uses differs depending on how much is used at once, but this bottle contains approximately 250 drops of USDA Certified Holy Basil Essential Oil.
Is this essential oil tested on animals?
We are proud to say that none of our products are tested on animals.
Is this in a plastic or glass bottle?
All of our essential oils are packaged into glass bottles. We recommend always opting for essential oils packed in glass and never plastic.
