Holy Basil Hydrosol / Tulsi Hydrosol

Holy Basil Hydrosol (Tulsi Hydrosol)

Little is documented about Holy Bail Hydrosol, but I look forward to exploring its applications more. Holy Basil is well known for its use within Ayurvedic practices, and I can see the hydrosol as being well received for use within spiritual applications and for use within fragrancing and perfumery work.

Holy Basil Hydrosol is herbaceous with a slightly detectable fruity note. It somewhat reminds me of a cross between a diluted blend of Basil and Bay Laurel essential oils.
