Ocimum tenuiflorum (also known as Ocimum santicum, Tulsi, Tulasi)
Steam Distilled

Essential oil extracted from Karpoora tulasi (Basil Holy) is mostly used for medicinal purposes and in herbal cosmetics, and is widely used in skin preparations and for fever, colds and infections.

 Some of the main chemical constituents of tulsi (Basil Holy) are: oleanolic acidursolic acidrosmarinic acideugenolcarvacrollinaloolβ-caryophyllene(about 8%), β-elemene (c.11.0%), and germacrene D (about 2%).

A variety of in vitro studies and animal studies have indicated some potential pharmacological properties of Ocimum tenuiflorum or its extracts. Recent studies suggest tulasi may be a COX-2 inhibitor, like many modern painkillers, due to its high concentration of eugenol. The fixed oil has demonstrated antihyperlipidemic and cardioprotective effects in rats fed a high fat diet.

Some laboratory experiments on extracts of Ocimum tenuiflorum have indicated they may have potential in future pharmaceutical applications in the field of cancer treatment, and mitigating the effects of radiation exposure.

Isolated O. sanctum extracts have some antibacterial activity against E. coliS. aureus and P. aeruginosa.
