Tulsi, which means "the incomparable one," has been around in traditional herbal therapy for its properties that enhance a sense of well-being and and maintain a positive disposition in life. It brings a certain glow in the spirit which radiates to the physical aspect. It is a potent decongestant when used in a diffuser so it is useful especially for the kids who are prone to catching cold and flu viruses.
Tulsi is also known as Holy Basil and its aroma is combination of sweet, herbaceous, warm, clove-like, and spicy notes. While there are essential oils that have cooling effects, Tulsi is literally warming and stimulating.
Since Tulsi oil has a very strong and overpowering aroma, blending it with conifers and eucalyptus is recommended to make it milder. 1-2 drops of clary sage and citrus would do the trick as well.
Tulsi is considered very sacred in India since ancient times. It has been associated with spiritual practices and is considered the incarnation of Vishnu, a deity in Hinduism. It has also been preferred by Krishna and Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and fortune. It has been included in certain rituals such as Tantrism. The ritual is done by placing the Tulsi plant on an altar, prayed to and worshipped as the personification of Vishnu, food and incense are offered, and a ritual watering of the plant is done. Since Tulsi is worshipped as a Goddess, it would be dressed and ornamented with beautiful floral arrangement. The leaves would be taken as a sacrament and prostrations are done.
