Tulsi Powder (holy Basil)
10 Holy Basil Benefits
1. Fights Acne
Holy basil helps kill bacteria and infections, so it’s a great natural home remedy for acne and other skin irritations. Holy basil is believed to benefit the skin and help to treat skin infections both internally and externally.
The primary active compound of holy basil oil is eugenol, also the active ingredient in the powerful antimicrobial clove oil, which is widely believed to help combat many skin disorders. Holy basil also contains other therapeutic components, including gamma-caryophyllene and methyl eugenol. Research published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science shows that holy basil may be a natural acne treatment. (3) When used with coconut oil as a carrier, holy basil absorbs into the skin even better and could be even more effective.
2. Protects Against Diabetes
Holy basil benefits appear to include the ability to control blood glucose levels as demonstrated by several test tube and animal experiments, as well as human clinical trials. A randomized placebo-controlled, single blind trial of holy basil leaves points towards holy basil’s anti-diabetic activity. In this trial, patients with noninsulin-dependent diabetes experienced decreases in fasting blood sugar levels, postprandial (after a meal) blood sugar levels, urine blood sugar levels as well as mean total cholesterol levels during the holy basil treatment period. Overall, the researchers conclude that holy basil may be prescribed as part of a treatment plan for people with mild-to-moderate non-insulin dependent diabetes. (4)
3. Helps Fight Cancer
In general, holy basil may not only possibly work as a natural cancer treatment, but another of the many holy basil benefits include that it may also help to prevent it. Research shows that people who regularly consume tulsi are less likely to be immunocompromised and less susceptible to developing cancer cells. According to research published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, tulsi and its phytochemicals (including eugenol, rosmarinic acid, apigenin, myretenal, luteolin, β-sitosterol, and carnosic acid), in some cases, may help prevent chemical-induced lung, liver, oral and skin cancers because they increase antioxidant activity, alter healthy gene expressions, induce cancer cell death, prevent blood vessel growth contributing to cancer cell growth and stop metastasis — which is the spread of cancer from one organ to another. (5)
Holy basil benefits also appear to help protect the body from radiation poisoning and help treat damage from radiation treatment, according to research published in 2016 in the the Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics. It selectively protects the normal tissues against the destructive effects of radiation. (6)
In fact, the journal Nutrition and Cancer published an interesting review outlining the important research involving tulsi’s ability to help fight against cancer that we’ve seen in the past several years. The doctors involved in this research agree that conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments used during the past three decades haven’t been able to contain the disease, plus they have serious side effects. Many natural agents — especially holy basil leaves and extracts from other plants — prove to be nontoxic, easily available and have proven anticancer properties. (7)
4. Balances Hormones and Lowers Stress
Holy basil benefits include the amazing ability to keep hormone levels balanced naturally. Tulsi has a positive physical effect on the body and mental benefits as well. By drinking tulsi tea, or adding tulsi to your meals, you help calm your system and keep your body running smoothly.
According to a scientific article published in 2014 in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, there is increasing evidence that shows holy basil benefits can improve physical, chemical, metabolic and psychological stress. More specifically: (1)
Tulsi has been found to protect organs and tissues against chemical stress from industrial pollutants and heavy metals, and physical stress from prolonged physical exertion, ischemia, physical restraint and exposure to cold and excessive noise. Tulsi has also been shown to counter metabolic stress through normalization of blood glucose, blood pressure and lipid levels, and psychological stress through positive effects on memory and cognitive function and through its anxiolytic and anti-depressant properties.
Some other evidence of this stress-lowering effect includes the ability of holy basil to improve reaction times and error rates in human subjects compared to placebo. (8)
Holy basil includes three phytochemical compounds that help achieve these results. The first two, ocimumosides A and B, have been identified as anti-stress compounds and may lower blood corticosterone (another stress hormone) and create positive alterations in the neurotransmitter system of the brain. (9) The third, 4-allyl-1-O-beta-D-glucopyronosyl-2-hydroxybenzene is also able to lower stress parameters in lab studies. (10, 11)
5. Relieves Fever
Holy basil is often recommended as a natural fever treatment, especially by practitioners of Ayurvedic Medicine. Holy basil leaves are thought to act as antibiotic, germicidal and disinfectant agents, which means they can protect us from bacteria and viruses. (9) When we have a fever, it’s proof that our bodies are fighting against an infection. Therefore, with its infection-fighting properties, tulsi may help to fight a fever and restore your health quickly.
6. Helps Improve Respiratory Disorders
Holy basil benefits are found in the components of tulsi leaves, including camphene, eugenol and cineole, which help provide relief from congestion and other symptoms of respiratory disorders. Scientific studies have confirmed that holy basil possesses impressive anti-asthmatic abilities and may make breathing easier, which is why it’s a commonly recommended herb for respiratory issues in Ayurvedic medicine. (1)
7. Good Source of Vitamin K
Vitamin K is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in bone health and heart health. It’s one of the main vitamins involved in bone mineralization and blood clotting, but also helps maintain brain function, a healthy metabolism and cellular health. One cup of tulsi leaves has more than your daily recommended value of vitamin K, making it a perfect source to prevent vitamin K deficiency. Plus, vitamin K can be beneficial to your bone density, digestive health and brain function.
Animal studies published in the Alternative Medicine Review also demonstrate that holy basil benefits include cardio-protective properties. In other words, it appears to boost heart health. (10)
8. Dental Care and Oral Health
Tulsi has the power to fight bacteria in your mouth that lead to dental issues, such as cavities, plaque, tartar and bad breath. Tulsi leaves serve as a mouth freshener because they kill the bacteria and germs hiding in your mouth. (11)
Holy basil benefits include helping to diminish ulcers in the mouth, and in vitro studies demonstrate it can stop the growth of oral cancer cells. (12) For natural dental care, try adding a drop of tulsi essential oil to your toothpaste or drinking one cup of tulsi tea every day.
9. Relieves Headaches
Practitioners of Ayurveda recommend holy basil as a natural headache remedy that can help relieve migraine pain. (13) Some believe this is due to its ability to relieve sinus pressure, and recommend diffusing holy basil essential oil or making tulsi tea to reduce headache symptoms.
10. Supports Eye Health
Our eyes are susceptible to viral, bacterial and fungal infections that can be very dangerous. Thankfully, holy basil benefits include helping to fight these detrimental infections. Tulsi is prescribed in Ayurveda to fight against conjunctivitis — also commonly known as pink eye — thanks to its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. (14)
Tulsi may also help prevent a range of eye issues, including cataracts. According to Dr. S.K. Gupta of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, topical administration of an herbal eye drop mixture containing turmeric and holy basil extracts helps to counter the oxidative stress and insoluble protein formation that lead to cataracts.

To make a rose petal face mask, powder dried rose buds in your blender or coffee grinder then mix this powder with raw honey and apply it to your face. Rinse off after 15 minutes for clean and bright skin!
2. Rose Facial Toner
Make your own sweet-smelling oil control facial toner using fresh/dried rose petals! You will need a little less than a handful of fresh/dried rose buds and 1 cup of pure water. Place the water in a pan and bring the water to a boil. Remove the water from the heat source, throw in your rose buds and cover the pan. Let it steep for around 30 minutes.

Spritz this on your face after cleansing and whenever for toned skin! If you don’t want to make your own, then just buy organic rose water!
3. Soothing Moisturizer
Organic roses are suitable for all skin types and offer amazing skin moisturizing properties for dry and sensitive skin. The natural oils in rose petals trap moisture into skin cells, hydrating and moisturizing them. To make a soothing moisturizer, you will need organic rose water, raw honey, shea butter and a few essential oils of your choice. One of my favorite essential oil combinations is geranium essential oil, lavender essential oil and tea tree essential oil. Now to prepare this moisturizer, place 1 cup of shea butter, 1 tbsp raw honey and 1/4 cup of organic rose water in a high speed blender. Blend till you get a silky white cream. Scoop it into a clean container then mix in 5 drops geranium essential oil, 5 drops lavender essential oil and 5 drops tea tree essential oil. Store in a clean container in a cool dry place. You can use this moisturizer for normal skin, dry skin, scars, stretch marks, inflamed skin, rashes, eczema and psoriasis.
4. Fades Blemishes
5. Oil Control Action
Most facial toners contain alcohol or witch hazel which tend to severely dry out skin. Roses will leave your skin soft smooth and supple as they have a natural astringent effect on skin. When applied to skin in paste form, rose petals will tighten skin and shrink large pores, keeping skin fresh and toned.
6. Gently Exfoliates Skin
Dried rose buds/petals have a gentle texture which helps deep cleanse skin; removing dirt, grime, excess dead cells, excess sebum and germs, stuck within skin pores. To make a gentle exfoliant, simple blend 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 cup of organic rose petals (fresh or dried, you choose) and 1/4 cup of white sugar. Add 7 drops of rose essential oil or geranium essential oil for a gorgeous scent. Store in a clean container. Use about 1-2 tbsp in the shower to gently scour off grime & dead cells from your whole body as well as seal in moisture.
7. Relieves Skin Inflammation
The anti-inflammatory properties in roses soothe skin inflammation including acne inflammation. Applying rose water, rose essential oil, or crushed rose petals to swellings or red skin will provide a soothing and cooling relief.
8. Natural Sunscreen & Sunburn Soother
The SPF of rose petals is not clearly known, however, roses are rich in vitamin C, which is a powerful anti-oxidant for sun protection. Vitamin C will bolster the skin’s UV defense and steer away free radicals from skin cells. Apply rose water on your face and body before going out in the sun as it is a natural sunblock for your skin. However, also be sure to wear a hat and cover up as well! Rose water is even effective in providing instant relief to severe sun burned skin. Simply steep rose petals in 1 cup of boiling water, strain after 30 minutes and store in a spray bottle. Spritz onto your sunburn for relief. Or, buy a handy spray bottle filled with organic rose water to spray on any sunburn.
Roses are rich in powerful anti-oxidants that nourish hair follicles and stimulate hair growth. Rose water is also a great hair conditioner and helps pump up dry hair cells with moisture. Did you know that rose water also promotes hair growth?! I was surprised as well when I found out! Spritz and massage rose water on your scalp, using gentle circular motions after a shower, to improve blood circulation and promote luscious long hair. Also spray on your hair for conditioned and lovely smelling locks.
