The temptations of Tulsi – Earth to Body


Perhaps sweet basil, the culinary marvel, greets you from a kitchen window perch or herb garden each morning? Perhaps, by chance, it is another family member that welcomes you, Holy Basil, aka Tulsi.  Not sweet, but more spicy or peppery with different uses and applications.

While edible sweet basil (Ocimum Basilicum) is renowned mainly for culinary purpose, Holy Basil or tulsi is renowned also for its medicinal properties (Ocimum tenuiflorum or Ocimum sanctum).

You may have made your own Holy Basil infused tea or added it to your chicken soup recipe. As wonderful as homemade chicken soup is, it is even more nutritious with tulsi, as it adds infection fighting and stress relieving properties. 

But while ingesting tulsi is wise nutritionally, it is also a lure to the skin and has antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, analgesic properties. 

If you have the holy basil plant you can crush up the leaves and add it to our clay-neem facial mask. Or, if easier, buy tulsi powder, available at many good health food stores. Cleaning the mask off with our soap and a spritz of our toner with rose water is a perfect way to cleanse the skin.

Earth to Body

Research has shown that when used with coconut oil as a carrier, herbal products containing holy basil absorb into the skin even better and could be even more effective against acne. An example of this combo would be in our charcoal clay soap.

Our charcoal clay soap is made with tulsi and coconut. The other ingredients are charcoal, olive, castor oil and a Canadian glacial marine clay, A nutritious buy  and gentle for all ages and skin types.

Brighten your skin, face, body and hair. Tulsi, high in Vitamin K, benefits the hair by stimulating blood circulation and promoting growth. Tulsi is known to help with itchy scalp.  You can make your own tulsi hair mask as they do in India, or just wash your hair with our charcoal clay tulsi soap. But don’t stop there.
