Tulsi (Holy Basil)
“Diffuse to promote a calming atmosphere. Add one drop to two ounces of water and gargle. Add one drop to your lotion as part of your skin care routine. Add one drop to palm of your hand, rub hands together, and cup hands over your nose and inhale.”
Native to Southeast Asia, this small, green, bushy shrub with lavender-hued flowers is part of the mint family. It has a history within Indian health practices as a natural solution for many conditions. Tulsi (Holy Basil) meaning “the incomparable one,” is considered “Queen of the Herbs.” Experimental research suggests that eugenol and beta-caryophyllene, constituents of Tulsi, contribute to its cleansing properties and skin benefits. CPTG® Tulsi resembles a cross between traditional Basil oil and Clove oil. Reminiscent of freshly cut basil, the warm, sweet aroma creates an engaging atmosphere. It is traditionally used around the world as part of rituals and protection in many cultures. Apply to skin to help keep the appearance clean and healthy.
Hi everyone, Krista Joy Palmer here!
I’m a big fan of doTERRA lemon essential oil, and I wanted to share some of the benefits I’ve experienced with it.
One of the things I love most about lemon oil is its energizing and invigorating aroma. It’s perfect for diffusing in the morning to wake me up and get my day started. I often say: Citrus in the morning to wake up and uplift, trees in the evening to calm, center and rest.
Lemon oil is also great for cleaning and purifying surfaces. I like to add a few drops to a spray bottle of water and use it to wipe down my countertops and kitchen surfaces.
Did you know lemon oil is an easy sticky tag and sticker remover? Try it!
And finally, lemon oil is a natural digestive aid. I sometimes add a drop to my water or tea to help keep my digestive system running smoothly. It’s a gentle detox every day. Consider 2 to 10 drops in your water every day, the benefits are amazing.
There is so much more to this amazing gift of the earth but that’s a start. One of the lowest cost essential oils, it is easy to take it for granted. But, the research keeps pouring in that this powerhouse is a must-have everyday.
