Product Description
Ocimum tenuiflorum, also known as Ocimum sanctum is called as Tulsi and Holy Basil belongs to the family Lamiaceae. Holy Basil has been described as the "Queen of plants" and the "mother of nature" due to its perceived health qualities [1].

It is one of the most valued and holistic herbs used over years in traditional herbalism in India and almost every part of the plant has been found to possess many health benefits. Basil is used in herbal tea or its oil is mixed with other herbs or honey to enhance the health value. Traditionally, it is used to support different health benefits including stomach health, upset stomachs, common cold, pro-calming cell promoting, and heart health.

Oils extracted from the leaves and inflorescence of Basil may have useful properties, including as expectorants, pain health, stomach health, and temperature support; stress support and pro-calming relievers; [13, 14]. *
Product Benefits
  • Basil oil has good bacteria supporting activitiesBasil essential oil could be a valuable topical microbial support agent for management of skin health caused by these organisms or as a wound dressing to support infection management. Early support or preventative measures may halt progression for health challenges requiring systematic body health, and reduce the risk of development of resistance to valuable antibiotics [1]. *
  • Linalool was the most active constituent of Basil essential oil and it showed varying degrees of fungal supporting properties [6]. *
  • Basil oil has been widely investigated due to its easy availability and microbial supporting properties. It is proved that Basil oil supports plaque health. It was effective for supporting the planktonic and biofilm forms of Enterococcus faecalis present in the dentinal biofilm [2].*
  • Basil oil is an excellent mouth freshener and oral disinfectant and its freshness can be felt for a long time. Basil destroys more than 99% of germs and bacteria in the mouth that are responsible for dental cavities, plaque, tartar, bad breath, etc., and protects the teeth. It also has astringent properties that make the gums hold the teeth tighter, thereby protecting them from falling. It supports healthy gums and ulcer health and is known to help support skin pro-calming agents [3]. *
  • Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a common symptom of the human population. Fifty patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain of unknown origin of mild to moderate condition were advised to apply Basil oil locally twice daily for 6 weeks and examined weekly. After completion of the applications the overall effect of this Basil oil preparation was found efficacious and topically safe as a great ache and pain support agent [4]. The oil has been found to be helpful in joint health [9]. *
  • Basil oil is a potential penetration enhancer for transdermal gel formulations. Permeation across skins was statistically enhanced by Basil oil and proved in an animal model [5]. Histopathological studies revealed some disruption in the epidermis without any toxic effect on the dermis layer of skin by penetration enhancers. [7]. *
  • The impact of diet and specific food groups on respiratory tract infections has been widely recognized in recent years. Dietary supplementation with Basil oils support healthy bacterial colonization management in the lungs [8]. *
  • The oil may support antipyretic activity due to prostaglandin inhibition and peripherally acting analgesic activity. The oil on intraperitoneal administration considerably reduced the febrile response in rats indicating its antipyretic activity. At a dose level of 3 ml/kg, the antipyretic activity of the oil was comparable to aspirin. The fixed oil possesses prostaglandin inhibitory activity and the same could explain its antipyretic activity [10]. *
  • Inhibitory, histamine antagonistic and antisecretory activities of the Basil oil contribute towards healthy cell production activity. The oil on oral administration significantly inhibited histamine-induced skin challenges in guinea pigs. The protective action of fixed oil could possibly be due to its inhibitory effect [11]. *
  • Basil oil has hypotensive, anticoagulant and immunomodulatory activities. Antioxidant property of the oil renders metabolic inhibition, support and hypolipidaemic activity [12]. *
Nutritional Profile
The essential oil from basil contains high concentrations of linalool and methyl chavicol (estragole), in a ratio of about 3:1. Other constituents include 1, 8-cineole, eugenol, and myrcene, among others. The clove scent of sweet basil is derived from eugenol. The aroma profile of basil includes 1, 8-cineole and methyl eugenol.
